HENRY COLE QUINBY. 



Contributed by Louis Effingham de Forest, A. M. 



Henry Cole Quinby, an annual member of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society, died suddenly in his sleep on the night of Monday, Oc- 
tober 23, 1922, at his residence, 235 West 75th Street, New York. The funeral 
services were held at Saint Bartholomew's Church, New York, on Thursday 
morning, October 26th. 

Only in his 51st year, his early and unexpected loss brought sadness to an 
extraordinarily large number of friends. Active as he was to the end in many 
widely varying interests the shock of his removal carried into many circles. 
Everywhere his high graces of culture, refinement and personal charm, and his 
exceptional abilities had made and held for him respect and warm affection. 

Henry Cole Quinby was born on July 9, 1872, at Lake Village, in the 
town of Gilford, now Lakeport, in the city of Laconia, N. H., the son of Henry 
Brewer Quinby and Octavia (Cole) Quinby. His father, a manufacturer and 
bank president, is one of the most distinguished figures of New Hampshire, 
having served as a State legislator, State Senator, member of the Governor's 
Council, and as Governor from 1909 to 191 1, and holding degrees in course of 
A. B. from Bowdoin (1869) and M.D. from Columbian University and the 
honorary degrees of A.M. and LL.D. from both Bowdoin and Dartmouth. 
Mrs. Henry Brewer Quinby, who died in 1920, was the daughter of Benjamin 
James and Mehitable Aborn (Batchelder) Cole of Lakeport, N. H. 

The Quinby pedigree in this country begins with Robert 2 who came from 
England to Salem, Mass., about 1638 and moved to Salisbury, Mass., where 
he early became a substantial citizen. This Robert 2 is believed to have been the 
son or nephew of William 1 who arrived at Salem at or about the same time but 
the exact relationship is not known. Robert 2 Quinby had a son Robert 3 who 

married Mary , then Joseph 4 who married Rachel Morrill, Joseph 5 who 

married Mary Haskell, Captain John 6 who married Eunice Freeman, Moses, 7 a 
graduate in the first class from Bowdoin, who married Anne Titcomb, Thomas 8 
whose wife was Jane Elizabeth Brewer, and who had Henry Brewer 9 Quinby, 
the father of the subject of this memoir. The family in the fifth generation 
moved from Massachusetts to Falmouth, now Portland, Maine. 

Henry Cole 10 Quinby was educated at Mrs. De Haven's kindergarten at 
Booneville, Mo., about 1878; Franklin public school in Washington, D. C, 
about 1879; the Misses Tompkinson's school at Harrisburg, Pa., in 1880; the 
Holderness School for Boys at Plymouth, N. H, in 1881 ; public schools at 
Stroudwater, Me., and Lake Village, N. H., 1882-1884; Chauncy-Hall School, 
Boston, 1885-1886; studied law in the office of E. A. and C. B. Hibbard at 
Laconia, N. H., in 1889; Harvard College, 1 890-1 893 ; Harvard Law School, 
1894-1896; received the Harvard degrees of A.B. in 1894 an d LL.B. in 1897. 
During this time he was especially active in school journalism, founding two 
school papers and managing the Harvard "Advocate" for several years. From 
Bowdoin College he received the honorary degree of A.M. in 1918. 



2 Henry Cole Quinby. ri an - 

Coming to New York City in 1895 t0 practice his profession, Mr. Quinby 
entered the office of the late Joseph H. Choate and remained there until Mr. 
Choate was appointed Ambassador to Great Britain. He has since practiced 
by himself, for many years being at 165 Broadway. 

On November 7, 1895, he was married at Boston by the Rev. Dr. Leighton 
Parks to Maria Coffin, daughter of Oliver and Cora (Doane) Stimpson, who 
died shortly afterwards. He married secondly, at Bridgeport, Conn., on No- 
vember 6, 1907, Florence Adelaide, daughter of Charles Ward and Amanda 
Maria (Hoag) Cole of Flushing, Long Island. Mrs. Quinby, who is the 
author of "Equestrian Monuments of the World" (New York, 1913), sur- 
vives her husband, together with his father and a sister, Mrs. Hugh Nesbitt 
Camp of New York City. 

Of Mr. Quinby's many interests outside his profession he gave as much 
devoted attention to the theatre as to any other. His affection for the stage 
and its people was not only great but his intellectual comprehension of the the- 
atre and its problems was profound. He was the attorney and friend of Booth 
Tarkington and others of distinction as dramatists or actors ; had long been 
a member of the Players Club; was known as an experienced critic of plays 
through whose hands numerous manuscripts passed; and he at times appeared 
himself on the non-professional stage with the venerable and flourishing Ama- 
teur Comedy Club, to which he had been elected in 1898 and which he had 
served as Vice-President. With this organization he played in 1900 the part of 
"Brooke Twombley" in Pinero's comedy "The Cabinet Minister," and in 1901 
the role of "Rev. Mr. Spooner" in "The Jilt", a comedy by Dion Boucicault. 
In 1903 he played "Bearward" in "She Stoops to Conquer" and in 1904 
"Smithers" in "Captain Letterblair." In 1905 he took part in a performance 
of "His Excellency the Governor," playing the part of "Groves," and in 1907 
he played "Knapman" in Henry Arthur Jones' play "Joseph Entangled." In 
1909 he was one of the students in the Club's memorable performance of "Old 
Heidelberg." In 1912 he appeared in "Greater Than the Law" as "Francois." 
His last appearance on the Club's stage was in 192 1 when he played the part of 
"Kitson" in "Mrs. Bumpstead-Leigh." 

The study of genealogy early drew the attention of Mr. Quinby and he 
brought to this subject his usual enthusiasm and zeal guided by the fine scholar- 
ship and the exacting professional training which made the results of his re- 
searches everywhere accepted as authoritative. He joined the New England 
Historic Genealogical Society about twenty-five years ago and was elected to the 
New York Genealogical and Biographical Society on December 2, 1907, serv- 
ing the last-named organization on various committees with much benefit to the 
Society. Desiring from an early date to publish an exhaustive genealogy of the 
Quinby (Quimby) family he conceived the idea of issuing a genealogical maga- 
zine which, while not ostensibly relating solely to his own family, would lead 
to the uncovering of much new Quinby material. " "New England Family 
History" first appeared in 1907 and ran for four volumes into 1912. It was an 
entertaining and informing magazine, very fully illustrated, and written almost 
entirely by Mr. Quinby as editor. In 191 5, he published the first volume pf his 
long-contemplated "Quinby (Quimby) Family History," a handsome and 
comprehensive book of over six hundred pages. At the time of his death he 
had just finished the preparation for the press of the second volume of this 
work. 

Although eligible to most of the hereditary patriotic societies he was ac- 
tive only in the Society of Mayflower Descendants in New York, which he 
joined in 1897, becoming a Life Member in 1915. He was elected to the Board 
of Assistants in 1916, and his great value to the Society early became apparent. 
From the beginning he gave valuable assistance in building up the library as 



I9 2 3d Preston Genealogy. 3 

he was very familiar with the fields of genealogical and historical literature in 
which he collected largely himself. At the end of the first term as an Assistant, 
in 1918, he was elected Governor of the Society and was re-elected annually 
every year thereafter to the time of his death when he had again been persuaded 
to be a nominee for another term. He was brilliantly successful in this office, 
having not only deep cultural background which made him exceptionally alive 
to and appreciative of the traditions and purposes of the Society, but he was 
always a singularly gracious and effective presiding officer, holding the af- 
fectionate regard of all his associates on the Board and in the Society. 

During the World War, Mr. Quinby was Chairman of the National Exe- 
cutive Committee of the American Defense Society and performed patriotic 
services of the first importance in suppressing German language newspapers 
and enemy propaganda generally. 

While never active in politics he had a wide acquaintance with men promin- 
ent in the Republican party, not only because of his father's eminent services, 
but owing in part to his own duties in the Union League Club of New York, 
which he served on the Library Committee from 1902 to 191 1 ; was Secretary, 
1914 to 1919; and Vice-President from 1920 to the time of his death. He 
showed such conspicuous fidelity in office that when he relinquished the post 
of Secretary a large number of members joined in presenting him with a gold 
watch, chain, and charm. 

Mr. Quinby was also President of the New Hampshire Society at the time 
of his death, and a member of the Harvard, Collectors and Midday Clubs, the 
Boston Philatelic Society, Bar Association, Rotary Club, County Lawyers As- 
sociation, New England Society, and the American Universities Club of London. 
He was a director of the Eagle Fire Company and the Sidney Steel Scraper 
Company.

I, John Thomas, E. Coll. Jesu. Oxon, was Inducted Rector of Hamstead, 
on Nassaw Island In the Province of New York the 27th of December in the 
year 1704, and baptized the Persons and Children underwritten since my in- 
duction in 1704 to this present 13th of July, 1707. The distinct time of their 
initiation into the Church by Baptism I cannot particularly and precisely notice, 
this Register Book being lately bought and delivered into my hands, but all 
Christnings hereafter, shall (God Willingly) be duly & precisely Registred. Asa 
Gildersleeve, born March y e 19th, 1685, was baptized in the year 1705, the son 
of Thomas and Mary Gildersleeve of Hamstead.. 
George, the son of Thomas and Mary Gildersleeve, born May y e 16th, 1690, 

was baptized at the same time. [1705.] 
Mary, the Daughter of Thomas & Mary Gildersleeve, born March y e 12, 1693, 

was baptized at the same time. [1705.] 
Dorithy, the wife of Samuel Smith, about 35 years of age, baptized Aug. 18, 

1707. 
Dorithy, the Daughter of Samuel and Dorithy Smith, born in Octo., aged 13 

years, baptized the same time. [Probably Aug. 18, 1707.] 
Samuel, son of the sd Samuel and Dorithy Smith, born in June, aged 12 years, 

baptized the same time. [Probably Aug. 18, 1707.] 

♦While searching in the Town Clerk's office at Hempstead, L. I., for data regarding my 
family, I came across an old book of the minutes of the meetings of the Town Justices 
and Vestry, beginning 1704 and continuing to 1784. In the front of this book there were 
several dates and names of baptisms of the early Episcopal Church (St. George's) which 
I have copied as nearly verbatim as possible on a typewriter, and enclose the same here- 
with. I believe the existence of this book is not generally known. I am certain that the 
people of St. George's knew nothing of it, as I went to the Rector and gave him a dupli- 
cate of the enclosed, and he told me that the dates of the enclosed were prior to the date 
at which his church record started. This matter is also missing from the printed edition 
of the records of the Towns of North and South Hempstead, as published and I therefore 
believe that it may prove of value to genealogists, especially concerning the Gildersleeve 
and Smith families. The enclosed comprise all of the baptismal and birth records in the 
book, but the minutes of the vestry meetings are very interesting, in all about 150 to 200 
pages, and are in fine condition, considering their age. Trusting that the enclosed may be 
of service to you, I am, 

Yours very respectfully, 

George D. A. Combes.

•The original, from which this Haigh family note is published, is recorded on a sheet 
of paper such as was manufactured about 100 years ago; the paper is yellowed by time 
and the handwriting is also apparently characteristic of about the beginning of the 19th 
century. The origin of this manuscript is not given, but it seems on the face of it to be 
the record of the marriage of John Haigh to Ann Southern and also a record of the 
births of their children, and a record of family deaths. Inasmuch as the death of John 
Haigh, Senior, in 1815, is recorded, the manuscript is manifestly in the handwriting of one

1. Ephraim Wright,* the original ancestor of the particular branch of the 
Wright family discussed in Mrs. Becker's article, was not the son of Abel 
Wright. His line of descent from Lieut. Abel 1 Wright was as follows : — 
Lieut. Abel, 1 Ensign Abel, 2 Ephraim, 3 who m. June 29, 1724, Hannah Wood 
and had Ephraim 4 Wright, b. March 16, 1735, who was the ancestor who 
originated the branch of the Wright family treated of by Mrs. Becker. 

The following is an amplification of the record of Ephraim 3 Wright (Abel, 2 
Abel 1 ) as given in the New England Historic Genealogical Register, Vol. 
XXXV, pp. 78-9: 

Ephraim 3 Wright, b. Feb. 29, 1704, Lebanon, Conn. ; d. 10-10-1758 in his

Indian War. He m. (1) June 29, 1724, at ? Hannah Wood, b. ; d. 

March 18, 1737, at Lebanon, Conn., probably. Ephraim 3 Wright was a farmer 
and lived at Lebanon, Conn., where his first six children (by his first wife) 
were born. He deeded land at Lebanon to various persons from Sept. 30, I737» 
to June 14, 1 75 1, according to the records of Lebanon and Windham, Conn. 
It is presumed that he removed to Hebron, Conn., sometime after the death

Ephraim 6 Wright, b. June 9, 1765; he is said by his descendants to have 
m. Esther Cleveland, but the Cleveland Genealogy states that it was Olive 
Cleveland who m. Ephraim Wright and was the mother of Matthew 6 Wright. 
Olive Cleveland had a sister, Esther Cleveland, who m. Rev. Palmer and she 
may have been a second wife of Ephraim 5 Wright, as a tombstone in Jefferson 
County, N. Y., is thus inscribed, viz: — "Esther, wife of Ephraim Wright, d. 
8-29-1841, aged 75" [hence b. 1766, one year after Ephraim 5 Wright was born 
and therefore of suitable age to have been his wife]. Matthew 6 Wright m. 
Hannah Davis, of Jefferson County, N. Y., and had Mary L. 7 Wright, who m. 
William Wakefield and had Inez M. 8 Wakefield, who m. Frank W. Kingsbury,

The Revolutionary record of Ephraim 4 Wright as given on p. 302 of the 
N. Y. Gen. and Biog. Record was the record of his son Ephraim 5 Wright by 
his wife Lucretia Holdridge. He enlisted Feb., 1781, Hartland, Conn., and was 
discharged March, 1782, Stamford, Conn. His application for a pension dated 
Sept., 1732, Adams, Jefferson Co., N. Y., was allowed and the last payment on 
it was made Sept. 4, 185 1.

Vol. LIII. p. 277, Record No. 39. 

The wife of Johannes Uytten Bogaert was Maria Vredenburg, baptized 
May 16, 1739 and died April 16, 1824. She was the daughter of Johannes and 
Jannetje (Woedert) Vredenburg. This correction is established by the family 
Bible of Gilbert Bogart which passed from him to his sister, Mrs. Augustus 
Wright who was Catherine Bogart and it is now owned by her great grand- 
daughter, Mrs. Charles F. Mac Lean. 

This Bible shows that Johannes and Maria had a daughter Catherine who 
died May 2, 1806, aged 36 years, 1 month and 13 days, and that her husband 
Augustus Wright died March 29, 1819, aged 53 years, 10 months and 21 days.

future meetings of the Society. 

The President then announced the names of the following members who had been 
elected since the last meeting of the Society, viz: — Franklin Underwood Gregory, Valentine 
Everit Macy, Elbridge Gerry Snow, — Annual Members, all proposed by Clarence Win- 
throp Bowen; Mrs. Morris Simpson Daniels, Frederick Peter De Witt, Mrs. William 
Carman Leggett, Samuel Seabury, Almuth C. Vandiver, — Annual Members, all proposed

throp Bowen. 

The President then announced that the following named members had died since the 
last meeting of the Society, viz: — Fanning Cobham Tucker Beck, Annual Member, died 
May 18, 1922; Mrs. Louis Flickinger, Annual Member, died June 24, 1922; Mrs. Theodore

Franklin, the Founder of America." The Rev. Mr. Rose, who is the well known student 
of the lives of conspicuous Americans of the Revolutionary period, and a popular 
lecturer on these topics, delivered a most instructive, edifying and interesting lecture, 
which was rendered graphically even more absorbing by the excellent colored illustrations 
which were thrown on the screen to emphasize his remarks. 

At the conclusion of the lecture, Mr. James Benedict moved a vote of thanks to Dr. 
Rose, which motion was seconded by Mr. Edwin H. Denby and was unanimously carried.

Editorial Note:— The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society solicits as donations to 
its Library all newly published works on Genealogy, History and Biography, as well as all works on Town, 
County and State History, or works embodying information regarding the Vital Records of any and all localities. 
It also solicits the donation to the manuscript collections of its library of any and all manuscript compilations 
which bear upon the above mentioned topics. 

In consideration of such donations the works so presented to the Society will be at once placed upon 
the shelves of its library and will be reviewed in the next subsequent issue of The New York Genealogical 
and Biographical Record, each donation of such character, whether in printed or manuscript form, will 
be reviewed under the head of " Book Notices " and a copy of The Record containing the review will be sent 
to the donor. 

The Society does not solicit donations of publications or manuscripts on topics foreign to the above men- 
tioned subjects, as its library is specialized and cannot accommodate material which does not bear directly 
upon its recognized sphere of usefulness. 

Donations for review in the January issue of The Record should be delivered to the Society before 
December 1st of the previous year; for the April issue, before March 1st; for the July issue before June 1st; 
and for the October issue, before September 1st. 

All donations will be generously reviewed with a view of calling the attention of the public to their good 
points; but, while generous, the reviews will contain such proper criticism as the interest of the genealogical 
student would expect from the editorial staff of The Record. 

The " Book Notices " of The Record are carefully read by all librarians as well as genealogical 
students. 

Letters of transmittal of donations of such works should embody the price of the work donated and 
the name and address of the person from whom it can be purchased. All books rerlewed in this depart- 
ment will be found upon the shelves of our library.

to Western Virginia in 1772 having married in 1760 Hannah White. Anthony III, the 
son of Anthony II Dunlevy removed to Kentucky, and the bulk of this volume is de-

additionally interesting in giving authentic information relative to a family that took part 
in the early western migration from Virginia.

In our review of this work which appeared in the April, 1922, issue! of the Record, 
we stated that the volume could be obtained from the author. We were in error. It can 
be obtained only from the publishers. 

The Descendants of Francis Swayne and Others, compiled by Norman Walton 
Swayne, of John M. George School, Bucks County, Pa. Octavo, cloth, pp. 154, includ- 
ing an excellent name index. Limited edition of 150 copies, privately printed, not for 
sale. Library valuation $10.00. Address: Compiler. 

"This book attempts to trace the descent of those Swaynes who have descended from 
Francis Swayne, born probably about 1660, an emigrant from England who settled in 
Pennsylvania in the year 1710. More than five hundred descendants bearing his name 
have been recorded. 

There will also be found some other lines, notably that of Abner Swayne, born 
1784, who married Anna Nutt, and lived in Virginia, and that of James Swayne, who 
married Anne Saxton in Delaware, 1805, then died the next year, and so never saw 
any of his descendants. No connection has been found between these and Francis 
Swayne. Perhaps they sprung from one or more of a half dozen Swaynes and Swaines, 
who are recorded as Virginia and Maryland immigrants from 1635 to 1668. There is 
a chance, too, that they derive their names from one or more of the Swains who

settled in Massachusetts in 1635 or earlier. In the lines of Abner and James, and in 
various other lines, nine in all, over two hundred Swaynes may be found." 
Recommended to all genealogical libraries. 

The Historical Register, A Record of People, Places and Events in American 
History. Edited, published and copyrighted by Edwin C. Hill, of No. 1 West 34th St.. 
N. Y. City. 1921. Octavo, cloth, pp. 208, with name index and 55 full page portrait 
and other illustrations of historic interest. Price $15.00 in library binding. Address: 
Editor, as above. 

t In the April, 1921, issue we had the pleasure to review the first two volumes of this 
series, to which review we again refer. This third volume of the publication fulfills 
the promise held out by the other volumes and we again reiterate our sincere hope that 
Mr. Hill may receive such generous support that the future existence of the work shall 
be assured. Recommended to all historical, genealogical, biographical and general 
reference libraries. 

Dickerman Genealogy. Descendants of Thomas Dickerman, an early settler of Dor- 
chester, Mass., prepared and published by Edward Dwight Dickerman and George Sher- 
wood Dickerman, with a supplement added by the latter in 1922. New Haven, 1922. 
Press of Tuttle, Morehouse and Taylor, of New Haven, Cona Octavo, cloth, pp. 700, 
including supplement and a most excellent name index of some 57 pages, and numerous 
portrait plates of great family interest. Price $6.00. Address: George S. Dickerman, 
No. 140 Cottage Street, New Haven, Conn., or the publishers. 

This volume is a 2nd edition of the Dickerman Genealogy, compiled and published 
by the same authors in 1897. The genealogical public is to be congratulated in thus 
having a revised edition set before them of an original work that itself had gained 
respectable authority before its successor arrived. 

The supplement (which precedes the second edition of this work) has to do large- 
ly with additions and corrections to the first edition together with copious notes on the 
Ives, Gilbert, Tucker and Bradley families, in all some 47 pages. The remainder of the 
volume some 650 pages is devoted to a republishment of the first edition. 

Heartily recommended to all genealogical libraries. 

The Century Biographical Encyclopedia. A record of the achievements and an 
outline of the genealogy of some of the most notable men and women of the present cen- 
tury, written and compiled from the original records and authentic data, and published 
as a tribute and memorial to those who have helped in making the America of to-day. 
Published by the Historical Press Association, Incorporated, No. 15 Park Row, New 
York City. 1922. Quarto; cloth, Vol. I, pp. 336, including 14 pages of name index 
and illustrated with some 77 full page portrait plates. Price $15.00 per volume, $150.00 
for the set of 10 volumes. Address : Publishers. 

This is the initial volume of a series of ten which it is planned will appear from 
this press as time progresses. Like the numerous other publications of its kind it pos- 
sesses merits that render its presence on the shelves of biographical, genealogical and 
general reference libraries desirable. The genealogy of the individuals whose sketches 
appear in the volume are somewhat elaborated so that the sketches themselves will form 
good prima facie evidence of ancestry, which may be verified and developed by refer- 
ence to more specific authorities. We hope the proposed series the best of success. 

We desire to call the attention of libraries specializing along the lines of biography, 
genealogy and history to the following named publications issued in the past by B. F. 
Johnson and Co., Incorporated of Washington, D. C. (which business is now, in 1922, 
being continued by L. Wilson and Co. of No. 602-nth Street, N. W., Washington, D. 
C.) : these special publications have distinct merit in so far as they give aid and as- 
sistance to biographers, genealogists and historians; for which specific reason they should 
be welcome additions to libraries specializing along those lines, viz : — 

Men of Mark in America. Ideals of American Life told in Biographies of Eminent 
Living Americans. Editor-in-Chief, Merrill E. Gates, LL.D., L. H. D. Two volumes. 
viz: — Vol. I (1905), Octavo, cloth, pp. 422^ including an index of some 126 biographies

of some 116 biographies and 36 full page portrait plates. Price $1000 per volume. 

Makers of America, Biographies of Leading Men of Thought and Action. The 
men who constitute the Bone and Sinew of American Prosperity and Life ; by Prom-

The above specified volumes of the series which includes many others (amongst 
which we may mention 4 volumes of Maryland and 4 volumes of Virginia Biographies) 
cover a large field of biographical interest. The biographies themselves give brief and 
comprehensive sketches of the lives of many of those who in the past and present have 
done much to build up the country at large and their particular section thereof. 

We take pleasure in calling the attention of the public to these works as furnishing 
foundational data relating to individuals upon which may be built by verification and 
elaboration as circumstances may demand, more detailed sketches of each particular 
individual.

Genealogical Chart and List of Direct Ancestors 



A Blank Form for Listing Records of 
Direct Ancestry 

This GENEALOGICAL CHART which is designed to give a place and a 
number for all direct ancestors up to and including the tenth generation back 
from the first or present,- is shown as a disk or circumference, divided in cir- 
cular zones A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I and J, each representing a generation 
complete in itself, and a LIST of ANCESTORS also divided into generations 
marked correspondingly to the zones and numbers in the Chart providing 
spaces for the entering of Names and Dates of births, marriages and deaths, 
for each ancestor. 

In the Chart, "A" is the present generation located in the Center of the 
circumference for the Filler-in of the Chart or Self; B is the Second, and is 
divided in two spaces, Nos. 2 and 3, for FATHER and MOTHER; C is 
the Third, divided in four spaces, Nos. 4, 5, 6 and 7, for the four GRAND- 
PARENTS; D is the Fourth, divided in eight spaces, Nos. 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 
13, 14 and 15, for the eight GREAT-GRANDPARENTS, etc., etc. 

To fill in the Chart proceed as follows: 

Enter OWN NAME in List under PRESENT GENERATION No. 1 
and check the letter A in chart. 

Enter FATHER'S NAME in List under SECOND GENERATION 
No. 2 and check the No. 2 in Chart. 

Enter MOTHER'S NAME in List under SECOND GENERATION 
No. 3 and check the No. 3 in Chart. 

Enter GRANDFATHER'S NAME in List under THIRD GENERA- 
TION No. 4 and check the No. 4 in Chart. 

etc., etc., and proceed to fill the List, as far as records may allow, and place 
a check mark {V) near each of the corresponding numbers in the spaces of the 
Chart. 

This system of charting Ancestry gives, at a glance, a picture of what 
one has, and what one needs. The check marks on the Chart indicate the 
ancestors found; those that have no check marks remain to be looked up. 
The relationship between one name and another can be told immediately by 
reference to the Chart taken in conjunction with the List. Each ancestor is 
listed under a number, which can serve for further indexing and filing of 
biographical matter concerning his name. This tends to eliminate confusion 
between several ancestors of the same name in different generations. 

The Chart blanks are reproduced from an original drawing by special 
process in black on heavy white drawing paper. The outside dimensions are 
16" x 32". The price is $1.50 per copy. Send order with accompanying 
check to

vi New York Gen. and Biog. Record. [Jan., 1923 

department for Registration of pe&igrees. 



Conducted by JOHN REYNOLDS TOTTEN. 



THE NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY 
conducts a department for the purpose of examining, approving and 

publishing pedigrees of individual applicants. 

The Society will accept for examination the pedigree of ANY INDI- 
VIDUAL, whether a member of the Society or not. 

Those desiring to take advantage of the facilities thus offered should apply 
to the Society for the authorized blank form on which to record the pedigree to 
be submitted for examination (enclosing #1.00 in payment for the blank). 

Applicants must either themselves, or with the assistance of professional 
genealogists, fill in the form as indicated and return the same to this Society for 
examination ; it being understood that the regular charges made by this Society 
are for examination and publication of the pedigree, and do not include genea- 
logical research in the preparation of the pedigree itself. 

When a pedigree is submitted for examination the applicant must send with 
it a preliminary fee of $25.00. Upon the receipt of a pedigree and this preliminary 
fee, the pedigree will be examined; and, if approved, it will be subsequently 
published in an issue of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Record, and the applicant will receive 1 copy of the Record containing the pedi- 
gree without further charge. 

Pedigrees must be submitted to the Society in form complete for publication. 
If, upon examination by the Society, essential facts are added to the pedigree by 
the examiner, a nominal fee, not to exceed $10.00, will be charged by the Society 
for ascertaining and embodying such additional information in the pedigree. 

If, upon examination, the pedigree is found to be essentially inaccurate, itwill 
not be approved and will be returned to the applicant ; and the preliminary fee will 
be refunded, less a charge of $20.00 for expert examination. 

If, when finally examined, approved and prepared for publication, the pedi- 
gree is found to require more than one page for its proper presentation, the fee 
for publishing the same, as above explained, will be at the rate of $25.00 a page 
(pages to be similar in size and form to those of pedigrees heretofore published in 
the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, — see issues from 
April, 191 1, to date of this issue), but, in adjusting the final charge, credit for the 
payment of the preliminary fee of $25.00 will be given to the applicant. 

For the benefit of applicants desiring extra copies of their pedigrees for 
family distribution, editions of 50 copies of such pedigrees will be supplied on 
4 page folders of linen ledger paper, with space left for additional notes, for 
a fee of $20.00. 

Individuals desiring their pedigrees prepared for examination, approval 
and later publication by this Society, and who are unfamiliar with the methods 
to pursue to secure the necessary information to establish such pedigrees, or 
who are unable to devote the required time to their preparation, — are invited 
to address this Society with a view to being put in communication with a 
professional genealogist capable of establishing and submitting them (when 
established) in proper form to this Society for publication. 

Applications for examination, approval and publishing pedigrees under the 
condition hereabove set forth should be made to the 

NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY, 
226 West 58TH Street, New York City.

REGISTERS OF PEDIGREES 

Form Copyrighted and recommended by this Society 

This Society has copyrighted and has for sale a printed blank genealogical chart called "Register 
otfedigrees. These registers are of two varieties, called "single" and "double" registers, respectivley. 
ibey are each bound volumes, 11 X 16 inches in size, properly ruled and printed for the insertion of the 
names and vital records in successive generations cf ancestors of the individual using the forms. 

• The "single" Registers consist of 17 leaves (34 pages), and when filled in will give all of the ancestors 
ot the individual in all ramifications for 9 generations, arranged so that the family name of each of the 16 
great-great-grandparents of the individual occupies a full page. Family names appear on the marginal index, 
which is formed by the indentation of each leaf. The back of eacb leaf is arranged for special memoranda 
concerning the correspondingly numbered individual on the front of same leaf. 

/^o The ~u 0ut ?'- e " Registers are practically two "single" Registers combined, consisting of 34 leaves 
(68 pages). The object being to permit the individual to devote the first half of the Register to the registration 
of the complete record of his male line of ascent; the second half for a like registration of his female line of 
asceut. The "double" Register therefore provides for the registration of to full generations in both the 
male and female lines. 

These Registers have been revised and improved in form and a new edition of the same is now ready 
for sale. In this new edition we have issued one-half in the old form of permanent binding in paper and 
cloth as heretofore; and one-half in "loose leaf" cloth binding. The loose leaf cloth binding is an improve- 
ment on the old form of permanent binding as it permits the indefinite extension of the "Register" to 
include the recording of as many generations of ascent as the individual can establish. 

The entire edition is printed on extra quality of linen ledger paper. 

Prick List:

Single Charts, permanent binding, flexible paper cover (edition exhausted) $1.50

Extra leaves for working purposes and for use in extension of loose leaf

Lots under 25 5 cents a piece 

Lots of 25 or more 4 cents a piece 

Individuals who purchase these Registers and fill them in carefully and as fully as possible, may present 
the same to this Society, and if found to be properly recorded they will be filed amongst the manuscript 
records, and the individual will receive a new blank Register in exchange for the same gratis. It is the desire 
of the Trustees that members of the Society supply themselves with these Registers, fill them out as fully as 
possible, and file them with the Society. They will be bound from time to time in volumes fully indexed and 
will thus form a record of great value to genealogists. Those who have in their possession information 
relative to their individual ancestry are urged to secure these Registers, fill them in and file them with the 
Society, as information of this nature is frequently lost to posterity owing to negligence on the part of those 
possessing such information to record the same in recognized depositories provided for that purpose. 



INDIVIDUAL GENEALOGICAL RECORD BLANKS: These blanks are printed by the 
Society for the purpose of furnishing genealogists a means of recording on a single sheet 
all of that which may properly be regarded as the genealogical record of an individual. 
Price, 2 cents each or $2.00 a hundred. 

These Registers and Blanks may be purchased from 

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, 
226 West 58th Street, New York City.

JAMES BRYCE, VISCOUNT OF DECHMONT. 



Contributed by Henry Snyder Kissam. 



Viscount Bryce, Statesman, Diplomat, Historian, Educator, Scholar 
and an Honorary Member of the New York Genealogical and Biograph- 
ical Society, died, suddenly at Sidmouth, England, where he had been so- 
journing for three weeks, on January 22, 1922, in his 83rd year. 

He was born in Belfast, Ireland, on May 10, 1838, and was the son of 
the Rev. Dr. James Bryce, a Scotchman and a Presbyterian minister. His 
mother was of Irish descent and was born in County Antrim, Ireland. 

He was educated at the University of Glasgow, and later became a 
student at Trinity College, Oxford, where he took his degree of A. B. in 
1862. In after life,, in recognition of the pre-eminence he had attained as 
a scholar, educator, politician, historian, statesman and diplomat, many 
honorary degrees were conferred upon him. Some thirty famous English, 
European and American Universities and learned Societies welcomed the 
privilege of setting upon him the seal of their commendation. Amongst 
such honorary degrees we may mention the following: D. C. L., Oxford, 
1870, — LL.D., Edinburgh, 1883, — Doc. Pol. Science, University of Buda- 
Pesth, 1896, — Litt.D., Cambridge, 1898, — LL.D., Columbia University, 
N. Y. City. 1904. His essay on "The Holy Roman Empire", which he wrote 
in 1862 was at once recognized as an historical master piece. After post- 
graduate study in Heidelberg, he became a barrister in Lincoln's Inn, 
London, in 1867, and he practiced law there for the succeeding fifteen 
years. In 1870 he was appointed Regius Professor of Civil Law at Ox- 
ford, which was one of the oldest scholastic chairs in Europe, having 
been established in 1646; he held this professorship until 1893. During 
the last few years of this incumbency, his duties as lecturer occupied but 
eight months of the year and he acquired the habit of foreign travel. He 
made several trips to the United States and Asia* and it was during this 
period that he established his enviable reputation as a mountain climber. 
He conquered the heights of Mt. Ararat, long regarded as an impossible 
goal, and his reputation secured for him the honor of the Presidency of 
the Alpine Club. 

■ He wrote several books on his travels, amongst which we may men- 
tion: "Transcaucasia and Ararat," "South America" and "Impressions of 
South Africa." 

During his travels in the Orient, he gained an interest in the Otto- 
man Empire, and in 1878, when he was 40 years of age and at which time 
he enjoyed an enviable reputation as a noted instructor of law, he entered 
politics, in which field he was a liberal and a staunch supporter of Glad- 
stone. He entered the House of Commons, representing Tower Hamlets 
in Northeast London, and as a reformer and by reason of his scholastic 
bent he approached his constituency, not as a political haranguer, but as 
lecturing professor. This method of approach suited his clientele and

they returned him to the House until 1884, when the reform bill changed 
the boundaries of his district. He was then invited to stand for election 
in South Aberdeen and was repeatedly returned therefrom. 

He was made Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs under Lord Rose- 
bery and representing his office in the House was a strong supporter of 
Gladstone in his proposals for Home Rule in Ireland. This latter political 
stand was but the result of his life long belief in the proper solution of 
the Irish question and was naturally caused by his mother's lineage and 
his own early environment. Gladstone's government wasi overthrown in 
1886, but James Bryce continued his work for Ireland and on Gladstone's 
return to power in 1892 he was appointed Chancellor of the Duchy of 
Lancaster, with a seat in the Cabinet. He was subsequently promoted to 
the Presidency of the Board of Trade, and in the meantime had accom- 
plished notable work for the advancement of education. He was Secre- 
tary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland from 1905 until 1907, in which 
latter year he was appointed Ambassador to the United States of America. 
It is perhaps not generally known, but he was a linguist far above 
average attainment, he was naturally a translator of great merit and spoke 
fluently some six languages besides English, and wrote easily in several 
of those tongues. 

The people of the United States in the early days of his fruitful life 
knew him best as a lecturer and as the author of the authoritative work on 
the American governmental system entitled "The American Commonwealth" 
which appeared in 1888, and again later in a revised edition. 

This work is regarded by American scholars as one of the foremost 
works of its kind. His latest work "Modern Democracies" , published but 
two years ago also dwelt largely upon the governmental system of the 
United States, and gave free scope to his analytical mind and the con- 
clusions reached by him therein will be authoritative to future students 
of governmental policy. 

His great knowledge of the governmental system in the United 
States, together with his liberal stand as an advocate of Irish Home Rule, 
had, perhaps an influence in securing him the appointment as Ambassador 
to this country. At this time he was offered a Peerage, which honor he 
then declined for the expressed reason that he referred to come to this 
country as "plain James Bryce". In his ambassadorial functions to this 
country he served his country well and did much to strengthen those bonds of 
unity between Great Britain and the United States, which mean so much for the 
future welfare of the world. He served as Ambassador for six years. 

In 1914 James Bryce was created the first Viscount of Dechmont. 
He took his title from Dechmont Hill, Lanarkshire, the locality in which 
the Bryce family had settled in 1659. 

During the World War he performed many and arduous tasks for his 
country. He wrote and spoke eloquently in expounding and interpreting 
the war aims of the Allied Nations. He was the head of the commission 
which investigated and presented evidence of the German atrocities in 
Belgium, and later he served in investigating and exposing the Armenian 
massacres by the Turks. 

He was an early advocate of the League of Nations as a "higher, 
nobler Monroe Doctrine for the whole world". He voiced his view that the 
Treaty of Versailles, in so much "that it disregarded the wishes of some 
peoples on their government and boundaries", contained the seeds of 
future wars. 

In 1889 James Bryce married Elizabeth Ashton of Manchester, Eng- 
land, whose mother was an American. From this union there was no 
issue.

LOBDELL FAMILY ORIGINS IN ENGLAND. 



Contributed by Louis Dow Scisco, 

Washington, D. C. 



The American Lobdell family, first located in New England, became 
resident in Westchester County, New York, about 1730, thence spreading 
to the upper Hudson River region and to the interior western counties of 
the state. The genealogist of the family traces its New England origin 
to two groups, — one, as she conjectures, from Herefordshire and the 
other from Kent or Sussex. Extended examination of English sources of 
information show her conjecture to be right in so far as it refers to Kent 
or Sussex. The surname was not known to Herefordshire. Some of the 
ancient English surnames were widespread throughout the shires of Eng- 
land; others were localized. The Lobdell surname was one of the local- 
ized class. Up to the middle of the 17th century, the surname in England 
was practically limited in habitat to Sussex. In that time some individ- 
uals bearing the name are traceable outside of Sussex, but in no case seem 
to have founded family branches except in New England. This geogra- 
phic limitation makes it possible to assert that the ancestors of the Amer- 
ican family came from Sussex, or, possibly, from just over the Kent-Sussex 
line. 

In published documents of the English archives the surname Lobdell, 
in its mediaeval form, first appears in 1296. In that year Robert de 
Loppedell paid subsidy at Eaglesdown in western Sussex. 1 A little later 
the records refer to William de Loppedell, who was vicar of Preston in 
middle Sussex in 1309 and vicar of Bexhill in eastern Sussex in 1313. The 
records also refer to Thomas de Loppedell, pastor of St. Bride's Church 
in London in 1313, and later, having returned to Sussex, pastor of Hoath- 
ley. In the year 1318, when the vicar William de Loppedell was trans- 
ferred by his bishop from Bexhill to the church in Selsey in western Sus- 
sex, a document was drawn which reveals that Robert, William, and 
Thomas de Loppedell were brothers, that Bishop John of Chichester had 
conferred upon William a landed interest at Eaglesdown and that Wil- 
liam desired to transfer this interest to his brothers. 2 

Of the parentage or antecedents of these Loppedell brothers the rec- 
ords tell nothing. The use of the preposition "de" shows that their sur- 
name is one of territorial derivation, — that is to say, the first bearers of 
it tdok their origin from some place named Loppedell. It seems clear, too, 
that they rose from obscurity by the favor of the bishop of Chichester. 
Of the geographic identity of Loppedell there is no hint in the English 
archives so far as they have been calendared. Probably it was some ob- 
scure farmstead in western Sussex. In mediaeval times, when the great 
religious orders owned vast estates and counted their landed tenants by

104 Lobdell Family Origins in England. [April 

hundreds, many obscure plebeian families rose to property and position 
by the help of their kindred in the clergy. Apparently it was so with the 
Loppedells. Certainly it is significant that when the lay subsidy of 1327 
was levied, the two places where Loppedells appear among the tax payers 
are Preston and Eaglesdown, both being places where the vicar William 
de Loppedell had held influence. 3 Apparently the vicar had established 
his yeoman kindred at these two places. 

William de Loppedell was pastor of Selsey as late as 1331. 4 Thomas 
de Loppedell was living as late as 1342. 5 After them, in 1348-49, Sussex 
was ravaged by the "black death" which swept over all England, wiping 
out whole villages and farmsteads and profoundly altering social and 
economic conditions. , After the pestilence the records show no reference 
to their surname in western Sussex. Doubtless the bearers of the name 
at Eaglesdown had perished. Those of Preston seem to have survived, 
although not immediately mentioned. Meanwhile at least one of the 
family had found his way to London, for Roger de Loppedelle in 1349 
acquired a lot in St. Sepulchre parish. 6 The clerical profession also re- 
tained its attraction for those of the name, for in 1492 Robert Lopedell 
was chaplain at Westham in Essex. 7 No other hints appear of any scat- 
tering of the Sussex stock. 

Ten miles from Preston, the old location of the Loppedell surname 
in middle Sussex, there is the coast town of Eastbourne ; and there, after 
the turmoils of the Wars of the Roses and the changes brought about by 
the Anglican reformation, the surname again appears in the English rec- 
ords, slightly altered in form. The probate of the estate of Agnes Lop- 
dell of Eastbourne in 1541 is the beginning of a series of probate entries 
bearing witness to the prosperity of those of the name in that place. 8 
When the benevolence was levied by Henry VIII in 1544-45, only one 
resident of Eastbourne was rated more heavily in worldly goods than was 
Nicholas Lopdell. 9 

For many years from 1541 onward the surname at Eastbourne was 
uniformly spelled Lopdell or Lopdall. In 1588 a variant form appeared in 
a probate record which gave the decedent's surname both as Lopdale and 
Lobdale, showing that a colloquial change was in progress. 10 In 1592 
the modern form of spelling of the surname finally appeared in the pro- 
bate record of John Lobdell of Eastbourne. 11 From this time forward 
the form Lobdell frequently appears, although not wholly displacing the 
older spelling. 

Until 1609 Eastbourne is the only recorded home of the Sussex fam- 
ily. In that year it appeared at Eastdeane, nearby. 12 In 1616 there was a 
Nicholas Lobdell at Hastings. 13 In 1618 there are references to brothers 
whose surnames are recorded as Lopdale and as Lubdey, — one living at 
Hastings, Sussex, the other at Romney, Kent. They tried to smuggle 
wool out of England in defiance of royal mandate. As a consequence one 
of them attained to a cell in Dover Castle, and much mention in the 
national archives. 14 In 1620 one Moses Lapdell lived in London. 16 He 
may or may not have been one of the Sussex stock. In 1625 the name 
appears at Jevington in Sussex. 16 

It was about the year 1635 that Nicholas Lobdell became a colonist 
of Hingham in Massachusetts and that others of the name appeared in 
Boston. There is no American record of their nativity. That will prob- 
ably be revealed when the parish registers of the Sussex coast towns are 
published. The family genealogist notes that the name Lobden was 
sometimes applied to the Hingham family. The surname Lobden was 
well known in Devonshire, but its use at Hingham was probably a local

error of no significance. There is no indication in the English records 
of kinship between the Lobdens of Devonshire and the Lobdells of Sussex. 
In their Sussex homes the family forefathers seem to have been small 
farmers or traders. Apparently none of them took part in civil affairs and 
certainly none of them possessed armorial bearings. Some time in the reign 
of Charles II, according to Burke, one James Lopdell became a colonist at 
Galway in Ireland, founding a family there which in the 19th century at- 
tained to armorial status. Doubtless this founder was of the Sussex stock, 
but the American Lobdells cannot possibly be descended from him and they 
have no right whatever to use the arms of this Galway Lopdell family.

Mrs. Holbrook was born in Newark, Wayne Co., N. Y., June 4, 185 1, 
and was married at Lyons, Wayne Co., N. Y., December 27, 1871 (she be- 
ing then about twenty years of age) to Levi Holbrook, whom she survived 
by about seven weeks. Levi Holbrook, her husband, was born March 7, 1836, at

Henriette May Elderd and married secondly January 23, 1906, Mary E. Hen- 
drickson: and Helen Holbrook, born June 18, 1882, in New York City, who

Mrs. Holbrook graduated from the Van Norman Institute, New York 
City in June 1871 and was married soon thereafter. About 1872 her hus-

their permanent home. 

She was of energetic disposition, acute mentality and engaging person- 
ality. Endowed with interest along many lines, of activity, she soon allied 
herself with, and engaged in the duties of those special interests which stim- 
ulated her endeavor. She was the Secretary of the Society of Holland Dames

olution (both General and New York State Societies) ; a member of the 
Huguenot Society of America ; of the Colonial Dames of America in the State

1 24 Necrology, 1922. [April 

Walther Luttgen, a Life Member of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society, after a brief attack of pneumonia, died at his residence 
No. 49 West 75th Street, New York City, on February 27, 1922, in the 84th 
year of his age. 

Mr. Luttgen was born in Solingen, Prussia, January 7, 1839. He was 
the son of Carl August and Johanna (Struller) Luttgen, and came to this 
country with his father when still a boy. He was educated in public and 
private schools both in Germany and the United States. 

On November 19, 1859, he entered the international banking house of 
August Belmont and Co., as an office boy and at the age of thirty had risen 
to be the head of the clerical force, and in 1880 on the retirement of Mr. 
Christman was made a partner in the firm and he retained his membership 
in the firm until his death. 

He was a director of the Illinois Central Railroad Company; of the 
Transatlantic Trust Company; of the Rapid Transit Construction Company, 
and a member of the New York Yacht Club, of the Downtown Association, 
of the Pilgrims of the United States; of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; 
the American Museum of Natural History, the Lincoln University Founda- 
tion, the American Game Protective Society, the American Forestry Associa- 
tion and of the Legal Aid Society. 

On May 23, 1866, Mr. Luttgen married in Brooklyn, N. Y., Amelia Vic- 
toria Bremeyer, by whom he had two daughters. He is survived by his widow 
and a daughter, Mrs. Paxton Little of Buffalo, N. Y. 

He was elected a Life Member of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society on April 5, 1916. 

Florence Van Cortlandt (Field) Bishop-Parsons, a Life Member 
of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, died at her country 
home, "Interlaken", Lenox, Mass., on October 15, 1922, in the 71st year of 
her age. Her winter home was at No. 853 Fifth Avenue, N. Y. City. 

Mrs. Parsons was the daughter of the late Benjamin Field, a merchant of 
New York City, and was first married to David Wolfe Bishop, who died 
about 1900 and in 1901 she married John E. Parsons, the distinguished lawyer 
of New York City, whom she survived. 

She inherited large wealth from her first husband, David Wolfe Bishop, 
and dispersed liberally from her resources in charitable enterprises. For many 
years she maintained the Catherine Street Mission in New York City, visit- 
ing the same every Sunday afternoon to keep in touch with the progress of 
this work ; she liberally aided the Woman's Hospital ; and furnished rooms 
at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, New York City and at the Home 
of Mercy Hospital in Pittsfield, Mass. 

Mrs. Parsons is survived by her son by her first marriage, Cortlandt 
Field Bishop and by a granddaughter, Beatrice Bend Bishop. 

She was elected a Life Member of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society on February 12, 1917. 

William Rockefeller, retired capitalist, and a Life Member of the 
New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, died after a brief illness, 
at his country home "Rockwood Hall", North Tarrytown, N. Y., on June 
24, 1922, in the 82nd year of his age. His remains were interred in the 
Rockefeller mausoleum in the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery near North Tarry- 
town, N. Y. 

Mr. Rockefeller was born in Richford, Tioga Co.. N. Y., May 31, 1841. 
He was a son of William Avery Rockefeller, a physician and farmer, who 
was born at Granger, Columbia Co., N. Y., November 13, 1810, who married 



I 9 2 3-J Necrology, 1922. I 2 5 

February 18, 1837, at Niles, Cayuga Co., N. Y., Eliza Davison who was born 
September 12, 1813 in New Brunswick, N. J., and who died March 28, 1889. 
Eliza (Davison) Rockefeller was the daughter of John and Cynthia (Selover) 
Davison of New Brunswick, N. J., and a descendant of William Davison who 
settled in Monmouth Co., N. J., near the end of the 17th century. Mr. Rocke- 
feller was a descendant of Johann Peter Rockefeller who was born in Ger- 
many in 1720 and who died in Amwell, N. J., 1763-6. 

He was educated at the Owego Academy, Owego, N. Y., and in the pub- 
lic schools of Cleveland, Ohio, — his parents, when he was but eleven years of 
age having removed to a farm in the neighborhood of Cleveland. His brother 
was John Davison Rockfeller, Senior, who was born July 8, 1839 and with him 
William Rockefeller, since 1865, was associated in the oil industry until their 
respective retirements from active business. Later in his business career he, 
with others of the Standard Oil group associated themselves in various finan- 
cial enterprises, using their great wealth to exploit and develop new fields of 
endeavor. One of such ventures was the formation in 1899 of the Amal- 
gamated Copper Company. Upon the dissolution of the Standard Oil Com- 
pany of New Jersey (the Standard Oil Trust), William Rockefeller's hold- 
ings of that stock was shown to have been only about five per cent of the 
number of shares held by his brother, John Davison Rockefeller; but at that 
time Standard Oil stock was said to represent only a portion of his entire 
fortune. 

William Rockefeller began his busines career at the age of seventeen 
years when he obtained a position in an office in Cleveland, Ohio; his wages 
or salary in that office barely enabling him to procure the necessities for 
existence. He was efficient and popular with his fellow workers and pro- 
gressed rapidly. At the age of nineteen he became book-keeper of the firm 
of Hughes and Lester, produce commission merchants, and in 1862 had risen 
to a partnership in that firm which then did business under the name of. 
Hughes and Rockefeller. In this business he accumulated sufficient capital 
to enable him to enter with his brother John Davison Rockefeller, into the 
oil industry, then in 1865 in its early infancy. 

The combination of the various oil companies which had sprung into ex- 
istence in 1865, and which were each individually engaged in disastrous com- 
petitive struggles for existence, was started, and by 1870 the combination had 
assumed formidable shape, there then having been established the firm of 
William A. Rockefeller and Company in Cleveland and the firm of Rocke- 
feller and Company in New York City to conduct and guide the operations 
of these combined interests. Such men as Henry M. Flagler and Stephen V. 
Harkness being associated with the combination to enlarge its scope and in- 
crease its influence. In 1872 other combinations were amalgamated into the 
original body and in 1882 the Standard Oil Trust was organized uniting in 
the hands of the Trustees thereof practically all of the larger companies do- 
ing business in the various states of the union. 

Whatever may be said of the ruthless methods employed in the early 
days of the life of this Trust to stifle competition, it is undoubtedly true that 
it brought order out of chaos in a business that prior to its formation was 
one of destructive non-progressive struggle for existence. The Standard Oil 
Trust eventually stabilized the oil industry just as the United States Steel 
Corporation stabilized the iron and steel industry of this country. 

William Rockefeller was pre-eminently the merchant of the association 
and to him was entrusted the marketing of the products of this industry. 

He was a man of powerful frame and rugged constitution, possessed of 
great energy and intellectual capacity; a man whom people liked. He was 






126 Necrology, 1922. [April 

stern but just, and kindly in his relations with those in his employment; a 
loving but undemonstrative man in his intimate circle. His personal qual- 
ities constituted a solid asset of the Standard Oil Company. 

In 191 1 he retired as Vice-President and Director of the Standard Oil 
Company of New Jersey and also as President of the Standard Oil Company 
of New York. He was a director and a large stock holder in numerous rail- 
roads, banks, mining and manufacturing corporations forming a list too num- 
erous to be set forth. Prominent amongst his banking interests may be men- 
tioned that of the National City Bank of New York City, which was known 
locally as the Standard Oil Bank. Of late years Mr. Rockefeller had not 
taken an active part in the operations of the many corporations with which 
he was connected. 

For more than forty years he had been a resident of New York City. In 
1875 he built his residence on the Northeast corner of 54th Street and 5th 
Avenue, which since that time he made his permanent winter home. 

Although a member of the Baptist Church, in recent years, during which 
he has spent a greater portion of his time in his country home at North Tarry- 
town, N. Y., he was a regular attendant at the services of the Protestant 
Episcopal Church, St. Mary's at Scarborough, near his country seat. 

Mr. Rockefeller was a member of the Union League, Metropolitan, Rid- 
ing, New York Yacht and Automobile Clubs of New York City and of the 
Ardsley, N. Y., and Jekyl Island Clubs. He was a member of the New Eng- 
land Society, the American Fine Arts Society, the Metropolitan Museum of 
Art and of the American Museum of Natural History. 

At Fairfield, Conn., on May 24, 1864, Mr. Rockefeller married Almira 
Geraldine Goodsell, who was born March 19, 1844 in New York City and 
died January 17, 1920. She was the daughter of the late David Judson and 
Ellen (O'Brien) Judson of New York City, and a direct descendant of Thomas 
Goodsell who came over to this country from Wales in 1678. Six children 
were born of this union, four of whom survived their parents, viz: — 
Lewis Edward Rockefeller, born Cleveland, Ohio, March 2, 1865 ; d. there 

August 3, 1866. 
Emma Rockefeller, born Fairfield, Conn., June 8, 1868, who married Decem- 
ber 12, 1896 at Tarrytown, N. Y., Dr. David Hunter McAlpin. 
William Goodsell Rockefeller, born in New York City, May 21, 1870, who 
died late in the fall of 1922; he married November 21, 1895 in New 
York City, Elsie Stillman. 
John Davison Rockefeller, born March 8, 1872 in New York City; died there 

June 10, 1877. 
Percy Avery Rockefeller, born February 27, 1878 in New York City, who 

married April 23, 1901 in New York City, Isabel Stillman. 
Ethel Geraldine Rockefeller, born April 3, 1882 in New York City, who mar- 
ried April 18, 1907 in New York City, Marcellus Hartley Dodge. 

The country estate of Mr. Rockefeller which is of vast extent and mag- 
nificent development lies in the east bank of the Hudson River near Tarry- 
town, N. Y., and is in close proximity to the celebrated country home of his 
brother, John Davison Rockefeller, in the Pocantico Hills, N. Y. 

Mr. Rockefeller was elected a Life Member of the New York Genealog- 
ical and Biographical Society on April 18, 1900 and showed his interest there- 
in by his generous support of its enterprises. 

Mrs. Eleanor (McCartney) Bamford, genealogist and an Annual 
Member of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, died at sea, 
enroute to South America, on October 13, 1922, in her 50th year. She was 



X 9 2 3-J Necrology, 1922. 12 7 

born in Montrose, Pa., September 21, 1873, and of late years had resided at 
No. 91 North Franklin Street, Wilkes Barre, Pa. 

Mrs. Bamford was the daughter of the late General William Henry 
McCartney, a gallant soldier in the United States War of the Rebellion and 
a prominent lawyer of Wilkes Barre, Pa., who was born July 11, 1835 in 
Boston, Mass., and died suddenly May 11, 1894, at North Mountain, Pa.,— 
and his second wife Katharine Elizabeth Searle, whom he married at Mont- 
rose, Pa., September 25, 1872, and who was born Montrose, Pa., May 17, 
1838 and died Wilkes Barre, Pa., April 18, 1914. Mrs. McCartney was a 
daughter of Leonard and Lydia C. (Dimock) Searle of Montrose, Pa. 

She was educated in the public schools of Wilkes Barre, Pa., and grad- 
uated from the Wilkes Barre Institute in 1893. Her mother, Mrs. McCart- 
ney, was one of the best known genealogist of her time, and a long time 
member of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society. Mrs. Bam- 
ford took up her mother's genealogical work upon the latter's death and 
proved herself a worthy successor of her mother. She was the author of 
"Extracts from the Diary of Rev. Davis Dimock", which was published in 
the Wyoming Valley Historical and Geological Society's Collections, Vol. 
XVI. in 1918; and recently was the author of an interesting Ford family 
essay which appeared in the April 1922 issue of this publication. 

Mrs. Bamford was a member of the Wyoming Valley Historical and 
Geological Society of Wilkes Barre, Pa.; of the Society of Mayflower De- 
scendants of the State of New York ; of the Order of Americans of Armorial 
Descent; of the Order of Colonial Governors, the Mary Washington Me- 
morial Association and the Dames of the Loyal Legion of New York; she 
was the Historian of the Wyoming Chapter, Wilkes Barre, Pa., D. A. R. 
In 1917-18 she was the Director of Food Conservation for Luzerne Co., Pa., 
and was on the Woman's Committee of the Council for National Defense. 

Mrs. Bamford was elected an Annual Member of the New York Gen- 
ealogical and Biographical Society on February 20, 191 5, taking up the mem- 
bership left vacant by the death of her mother. She was, while living in 
New York a devoted member of the Society and retained her interest even 
when she removed to Wilkes Barre. 

The fact of not only her own interest in our Society's welfare, but 
likewise that of her mother, is made a matter of ever recurring notice in the 
future by the leaving in her will of a legacy to the Society of $500. in mem- 
ory of her mother, the principal of the fund to remain intact and the interest 
therefrom to be used for the purchase of books for the Society's library. 

Fanning Cobham Tucker Beck, Banker, an Annual Member of the 
New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, died at his residence, 122 
East 62nd Street, New York City, May 18, 1922, in his 79th year.

1813, M. D. 1817, and A. M. 1818, and was called to the staff of the College 
of Physicians and Surgeons (now the Medical School of Columbia) in 1826 
as Professor in botany and materia medico. He was later appointed pro- 
fessor of medical jurisprudence, which chair he held up to his death in 1851. 
In the "History of Columbia College" he is eulogized as a forceful and influ- 



1 28 Necrology, 1922. [April 

ential contributor to medical literature, and as one of the early benefactors 
of the medical school. * 

Mr. Beck received his early education from schools in New York City, 
following which he entered Columbia College in the Class of i863. He left 
college before graduation (receiving however his A. B. degree subsequently), to 
enter the U. S. Navy in the War of the Rebellion ; he served on the steamer 
"Rhode Island" under his cousin Captain Stephen D. Trenchard of New York, 
who later became Admiral Trenchard. Mr. Beck upon returning to civilian 
life devoted himself to a banking career, but of late years had not been en- 
gaged in active business. 

He was the descendant of a long line of prominent American Colonial 
ancestors. On his father's side, the line came down from the founder Dutch 
settlers of Albany, N. Y., and on his mother's side, from the earliest English 
settlers on Long Island, N. Y. 

He was unmarried, making his home in recent years with his sister, Mrs. 
Cortlandt (Theresa R. Beck) Irving in New York City. He was a member

logical record of those from whom she descended. 

Mrs. Dinsmore was elected an Annual Member of the New York Genea-

No. 119. GOLD ANNIE BURR JENNINGS 

: 1. Major Nathan* Gold,* b at Eng.; d. Sunday, March 4, 1693-4, at Fairfield, 

Conn., and is supposed to have been buried in the Old Burying Ground, Fairfield, Conn., 

along side of the grave of his son Nathan 2 Gold, but no stone marks his grave; m 

(subsequent to May 22, 1648, the date of death of Edmund Harvey), at (Fairfield, 

Conn., probably), to Martha ( ) Harvey (2nd wife and widow of Edmund Harvey; her 

parentage is as yet undetermined), b , at ; d (previous to her hus- 
band it is thought, as she is not mentioned in his will dated March 1, 1693-4), at 

Res.: He came to this country in 1646-7 from St. Edmund's Bury (or Bury St. Edmund's), Co. Suffolk, Eng.; he 
purchased land in Milford, Conn., in 1647, and again in 1649. On Dec. 31, 1649 (or 1650), he sold his land 
in Milford and removed to Fairfield, in which town he first bought land in 1652. He was a Town Clerk in 

f Fairfield and served as a Judge of the "sea-side" courts. In 1657 he was made an Assistant and was also 

appointed as a Magistrate by the General Assembly. He, with Governor Winthrop and others (19 in all), 
joined in the petition to Charles II of England to grant the Charter to Connecticut and he was named an 
Assistant to the Governor in that new Charter which was granted in 1662. So he was an Assistant under 
the old and new charters from 1657 until his death in 1693-4. The fact that he was named an Assistant in 
the Charter of Charles II is ample proof of his standing in the Colony. No gentleman would have been 
called upon to sign the petition for the Charter, and none would have been named an Assistant in the New 
Charter, but one who had maintained a high reputation in England before coming to this country. In 1664 
he was made Commander-in-Chief of the military forces in Fairfield County to provide against attack by the 
Dutch. He was a member of the Committee on War in 1665 and was made a Major in 1673 and commanded 
the Fairfield troops in war against the Indians in 1675. In 1684 he was one of a committee of five sent 
from Connecticut to New York to congratulate Governor Dongan on his arrival in New York and to settle 
the boundary dispute between New York and Connecticut. He made his will on March 1, 1693-4, and died 
at Fairfield, March 4, 1693-4, 3 days after making his will. His death is thus recorded in the Town Records 
of Fairfield: — "Major Nathan Gold departed this life into the mansions of rest on the Day of Rest, on the 
Sabbath, it being the 4th of March, 1693-4." Almost from the moment of his arrival in Fairfield for nearly 
40 years he had been a leader in political, military and ecclesiastical affairs of the town and colony. No 
man in the country was more respected or honored than he, and none in New England stood higher in the 
esteem of the Lords of the Council Chamber at Whitehall. In his will he mentions his only son Nathan, his 
daughters Sarah (wife of John Thompson of Fairfield) ; Deborah (wife of George Clark of Milford) ; Abigail 
(wife of Jonathan Selleck of Stamford), and Martha (widow of John Selleck). The will does not mention 
an elder daughter who m. Dr. Josiah Harvey of Fairfield, as she d. childless before her father's death. No 
mention is made of his wife who also d. before him. Schenck's History of Fairfield, Vol. 1, p. 370, states: 
"The name of his first wife is not known." If he was m. previous to his marriage to the widow of Edmund 

Harvey there is at present no evidence of the fact; and his wife Martha ( ) Harvey-Gold was certainly 

the mother of his children.

Res.: Fairfield, Conn., until he was 16 years old, and where he was educated in the public schools and at the Academy. 
At the age of 16 he went to Bridgeport, Conn., and entered the dry-goods store of Messrs. Shelton and Thatcher, 
where he remained for two years learning much of mercantile life. He then left Bridgeport and entered into 
the employ of Messrs. Browning and Hull in the wholesale dry-goods business on Pearl Street, New York City. 
On the breaking out of the gold fever in 1849 in California, the firm of Browning and Hull decided it should 
have a branch house in California and selected from their employ two clerks, namely: Benjamin Brewster from 
Norwich and Oliver Jennings from Fairfield. Mr. Brewster was sent around the Horn with the merchandise 
while Mr. Jennings went across the Isthmus to arrive in California in time to select a building for the arrival 
of Mr. Brewster and the merchandise. This business connection proved successful and profitable to both part- 
ners. They were burnt out twice in the great fires that swept over San Francisco. In_1857 the business was 
sold out and both partners returned to New York and retired from active business. This was largely owing to 
the breaking out of the Civil War. Mr. Jennings later on became interested in the welfare of the Standard 
Oil Co., as his sister-in-law was the wife of William Rockefeller, one of the important partners of the Company.

!o. 122. BURR ANNIE BURR JENNINGS 

1. Jehue 1 Burr, b. . . . ? (prior to 1610, undoubtedly, as he was sworn in as a freeman in Roxbury, 
Mass., on May 18, 1631, and he must have been at least 21 years old at that time), in 

...? (England, most probably); d 1671-2 (subsequent to March 18, 1671, on which 

date John 2 Burr received a deed from his father Jehue 1 Burr; and also prior to Jan. 12, 
1673, as on this date the Fairfield Records, Vol. I, mention John 2 Burr as having re- 
ceived 27 acres of land by the will of his father), at Fairfield, Conn., probably and was 
probably buried there in the Old Burying Ground, although no stone now marks his 

grave; hem. . . . ? at . . . ? to ? (possibly a sister of John Cable of Fairfield, 

Conn., as John Cable who d. in 1682, in his will mentions his Kinsmen Jehu and John 
Burr who may have been his nephews, on their mother's side, or his cousins on that 
same maternal side), b. . . ., at . . .; d. . . . (subsequent to 1642, as her son Daniel 2 Bun- 
was b. about that year), at . . . ? The parentage, maiden surname and baptismal name 
of Jehue 1 Burr's wife have not as yet been determined. 

Res.: He is reported by all authorities to have come over to this country "in the fleet with Winthrop," and on Oc- 
tober 19, 1630, to have made a request to be admitted as a freeman of Roxbury, Mass.; this request was 
granted and on May 18, 1631 he was sworn in as a freeman of that town. Both he and his wife were members of 
the Roxbury church; he was a carpenter by trade and was an overseer of roads in Roxbury and in 1633 he was 
appointed by the Colonial Government to see, "to the bridges between Boston and Roxbury." In 1635-6, he, 
with William Pynchon and others (7 families in all) removed to Springfield (Agawam), then subject to the 
jurisdiction of Connecticut Colony; the agreement by which the land on which this settlement was planted 
was granted to William Pynchon, Jehuel Burr, Henry Smith and others on June 15, 1636. He was made 
collector of the rates at Agawam in 1637; on April 5, 1638 and on Sept. 9, 1641 he represented Agawam 
as a Deputy to the General Court at Hartford. He remained in Agawam about 7 or S years. At the

BURR— Continued. 

General Court held at Hartford. October 25, 1644, he was appointed to collect money at "Uncowaue" (Fair 
field) for the maintenance of scholars at Cambridge, which fixes the date of his settlement in that town. H< 
settled in Fairfield about 1644 and remained a resident thereof until his death. He represented that town, a 
the General Assembly as a deputy for the first time on Sept. 11, 164S, and again on April 9, 1646. He wai 
made a Grand Juror to represent Fairfield, Conn., on May 17, 1660. He again represented Fairfield as i 
deputy to the General Court at Hartford on May 16, 1661 and in 1662, 1663 and 1668; he was a Commissionei 
to represent Fairfield in 1664, 1668 and 1669. The name of Jehue Burr appears on the records of the Coloni 
of Connecticut frequently up to the year 1692, and it is quite difficult to determine in some instances whethe" 
the references refer to Jehuel Burr (the father) or to Jehu2 Burr (the son). From the fact that Jehuel Bur 
died in 1671-2, it is assumed that the references to this name prior to the Court of October, 1670 refer to Jehue: 
Burr and references subsequent to that date to the Jehu2 Burr, the son. At the General Court of April 10 
164S and at the particular court held June 5, 1645 he is spoken of as Jehu Burr the elder, which gives groum 
to the hypothesis that his son Jehu2 Burr had (on or prior to the 10th of April, 1645) attained his majority an< 
that it was necessary to distinguish between father and son. This seems to be the only known reason for thi 
assumption that Jehu2 Burr was born in 1624. 

Children: 5 (BURR), 4 sons and perhaps 1 or more daughters, viz: — (1) JEHU2, b 1624, about (as his father i 

specifically mentioned as Jehu Burr the elder on April 10, 1645, it is assumed that his son had on or abou 

this date attained his majority), in ..., England, probably; d 1692; m. (1) MARY WARD; m. (2' 

ESTHER (...) BOOSEY (see below),— (2) John2, b 1633, about ("aged about 48 years in February 

1681-2"); m. Sarah Fitch,— (3) Nathaniel2, b 1640, about; d. Feb. 26,- 1712; m. (1) Sarah Ward; m. (2 

Hannah (Goodyear) Wakemant, — W Daniel2, b. ... 1642 (he was "aged about 40 in November, 1682"*) 
m. (1) ...; m. (2) Dec 11, 1678, Abigail Glover, — (5) Elizabeths (perhaps) who possibly m. Sergeant Nehe 
miah Olmstead, who d. before 1671. 

The above mentioned 4 sons are all of the children of Jehuel Burr of whom we have specific mentioi 
by name. The lapse of time (1624-1633) between the dates of birth of the first and second sons of Jehue 
Burr, and the lapse of time (1633-1640) between the births of the second and third of his sons, suggests th< 
birth of other children between 1624-1633 and 1633-1640, of which children we have no specific record 
But in the settlement of the lands of Sergeant Nehemiah Olmstead who died before 1671 land is spoken o 
which he purchased from his brother-in-law Jehue Burr, which suggests that Nehemiah Olmstead had marrio 
Elizabeth, daughter of Jehuel Burr (see Schenck's History of Fairfield, Vol. I, pp. 359-61). 

2. Jehu 2 Burr, b. ..., 1624, about (at the General Court at Hartford on April 10, 1645, his father 

Jehue 1 Burr is spoken of as Jehue Burr the elder; hence it is assumed that he, Jehu 
Burr had on or prior to April 10, 1645 reached the full age of 21 years), in ..., Eng 
land (this on the hypothesis that he was 21 years old in 1645, and taken in connectioi

Res.: Fairfield, Conn. In 1671 he purchased of his brother John2 Burr the tetter's interest in his father's homestead i 
Fairfield, Conn., and thereafter he made his home there. He served in King Philip's War as a Captain an 
represented Fairfield in the Connecticut General Assembly as a deputy from 1670 almost continuously unt 
his death in 1692, and at the same time served the Assembly as a Commissioner to Fairfield and as such ha 
great power. He was made a Justice of the Peace for Fairfield on May 9, 1689; and audited the accounts c 
the Colonial Treasurer, Oct. 9, 1684. In 1673 he was made a Lieutenant in the Train Band and serve 
in the threatened invasion of Connecticut territory bjr the Dutch in that year. He served on the Standin 
Council of the General Court in 1675-6; he was nominated for the office of Assistant in the years 1690-91-92 
but it does not appear that he was elected. His will was dated Jan. 11, 1690 and the inventory of his estal 
was made Oct. 31, 1692. In his will he mentions his wife Esther, his sons Daniel, Peter and Samuel, daugl 
ter Esther, who had received her portion and other daughters Elizabeth, Sarah, Joanna and Abigail who wer 
then minors, and his grand-daughter Mary, daughter of his daughter Mary (Burr) Wakeman, who had pn 
deceased him. Jehu2 Burr and his brother John2 Burr were both amongst the "proprietors" to whom th 
patent of Fairfield was granted in 1685.

Res.: He graduated at Harvard College in 1690; he taught school for a time in Boston and Schenck says that he ma 
ried his first wife in Boston; of this first wife nothing has up to the present been determined; but she was tl 
mother of all of his children. He was dismissed to the church in Fairfield from the South Church, Bostc 
on April 6, 1701, six months after his first child was baptized. He was Auditor of the Accounts of tl 
Colonial Treasurer in 1700-2, 1710-15, 1718-19, 1721, 1723-24; Deputy to the Connecticut General Assemb 

t Both the Burr Genealogy, p. 134 and the Wakeman Genealogy, p. 161, agree in stating that Nathaniel2 Burr m. as h 
second wife, the widow of the Rev. Samuel Wakeman. The Wakeman Genealogy states that she_ was Hannah (Goodyeai 
Wakeman, widow of Rev. Samuel Wakeman, and the Burr Genealogy states that she was Ann, widow of Rev. Samuel Wak 
man, and dau. of Dr. James Laborie. Schenck's History of Fairfield, Vol. I, p. 361, states that Nathaniel2 Burr's second wl 
was Ann, dau. of Dr. James Laborie, and the same volume, p. 417, states that Hannah, widow of Rev. Samuel Wakeman, le 
a large estate of £900. So it seems that according to the preponderance of evidence that Rev. Samuel Wakeman's wido 
was named Hannah, and there is no evidence beyond the statement in the Burr Genealogy and Schenck's, Vol. I, p. 361, th 
her name was Ann; nor is there any evidence Rev. Samuel Wakeman ever had but one wife, viz: Hannah (Goodyear) Wak 
man, who is reported as having survived her husband, and who d. in 1721 (administration on her estate being granted No 
7, 1721). If all the above is correct (and at this writing I believe it to be correct) then Nathaniel2 Burr m. as his secoi 
wife, Hannah (Goodyear) Wakeman, the only wife and the widow of Rev. Samuel Wakeman. She survived NathanieU Bu 
(who d. Feb. 26, 1712) and d. in 1721 (administration on her estate granted Nov. 7, 1721) leaving an estate of £90 
Nathaniel2 Burr's second wife was Hannah, not Ann; and I see before me no evidence that she was a dau. of Dr. Jam 
Laborie. The question as to who was the second wife of Nathaniel2 Burr, seems to have been confused by the varioi 
genealogists, but I think my presentment of the case is (in the absence of positive evidence to the contrary) correct. ] 
so far as this peditrTee is concerned, who Nathaniel 2 Burr's second wife was is not material as all of the authorities agr 
that all of the children of Nathaniel2 Burr were by his first wife Sarah (Ward) Burr.

at Fairfield, Conn.; d. April 29, 1776, aged 76 years, 13 days, at Fairfield, Conn., and was

baptism is correct (April 14, 1700) as given by Mrs. Schenck (Vol. II, p. 474, History 
of Fairfield) then his age at death as recorded on his gravestone (76 years, 13 days) 
cannot be correct, as it would place his date of birth April 16, 1700, or two days after 
his baptism (see Old Burying Ground, Fairfield, Conn., p. 30). This lack of harmony 
suggests that his age at death should have been interpreted 76 years and 18 days, 
which would place his date of birth April 11, 1700, which would harmonize with a bap- 
tismal date of April 14, 1700. The inventory of his estate was taken June 3, 1776.

No. 123. BURR ANNIE BURR JENNINGS 

1. Jehue 1 Burr, b. . . . ? (prior to 1610, undoubtedly, as he was sworn in as a freeman in Roxbury 
Mass., on May 18, 1631, and he must have been at least 21 years old at that time), ii 
...? (England, most probably); d. ..., 1671-2 (subsequent to March 18, 1671, on whicl 
date John 2 Burr received a deed from his father Jehue 1 Burr; and also prior to Jan. 12 
1673, as on this date the Fairfield Records, Vol. I, mention John 2 Burr as having re 
ceived 27 acres of land by the will of his father), at Fairfield, Conn., probably, and wa: 
probably buried there in the Old Burying Ground, although no stone now marks hi; 

grave; he m. . . . ? at . . . ? to ? (possibly a sister of John Cable of Fairfield 

Conn., as John Cable who d. in 1682, in his will mentions his Kinsmen Jehu and Johi 
Burr who may have been his nephews, on their mother's side, or his cousins on tha 

same maternal side), b at ...; d. ... (subsequent to 1642, as her son Daniel 2 Bur: 

was b. about that year), at . . . ? The parentage, maiden surname and baptismal nam. 
of Jehue 1 Burr's wife have not as yet been determined. 

Res.: He is reported by all authorities to have come over to this country "in the fleet with Winthrop", and on Octobe 
19, 1630, to have made a request to be admitted as a freeman of Roxbury, Mass.; this request was granted an< 
on May 18, 1631 he was sworn in as a freeman of that town. Both he and his wife were members of the Ro> 
bury church; he was a carpenter by trade and was an overseer of roads in Roxbury and in 1633 he was af 
pointed by the Colonial Government to see, "to the bridges between Boston and Roxbury". In 1635-6, he, wit 
Wiljiam Pynchon and others (7 families in all) removed to Springfield (Agawam), then subject to the juri; 
diction of Connecticut Colony; the agreement by which the land on which this settlement was planted wa 
granted to William Pynchon, jehuel Burr, Henry Smith and others on June 15, 1636. He was made collecto 
of the rates at Agawam in 1637; on April 5, 1638 and on Sept. 9, 1641 he represented Agawam as a Deputy t 
the General Court at Hartford. He remained in Agawam about 7 or 8 years. At the General Court held at Har 
ford, October 25, 1644, hewas appointed to collect money at "Uncowaue" (Fairfield) for the maintenance o 
scholars at Cambridge, which fixes the date of his settlement in that town. He settled in Fairfield about 1644 an 
remained a resident thereof until his death. He represented that town at the General Assembly as a Deputy fo 
the first time on Sept. 11, 1645, and again on April 9, 1646. He was made a Grand Juror to represent Fairfielc 
Conn., on May 17, 1660. He again represented Fairfield as a deputy to the General Court at Hartford on May 1( 
1661 and in 1662, 1663 and 1668; he was a Commissioner to represent Fairfield in 1664, 1668 and 1669. Th 
name of Jehue Burr appears on the records of the Colony of Connecticut frequently up to the year 1692, an 
it is quite difficult to determine in some instances whether the references refer to Jehuel Burr (the father) o 
to Jehu2 Burr (the son). From the fact that Jehue 1 Burr died in 1671-2, it is assumed that the reference 
to this name prior to the Court of October, 1670 refer to Jehuel Burr and references subsequent to that dat 
to the Jehu2 Burr, the son. At the General Court of April 10, 1645 and at the particular court held June I 
1645 he is spoken of as Jehu Burr the elder, which gives ground to the hypothesis that his son Jehu2 Bui 
had (on or prior to the 10th of April, 1645) attained his majority and that it was necessary to distinguis 
between father and son. This seems to be the only known reason for the assumption that Jehu2 Burr was bor 
in 1624. 

Children: 5 (BURR), 4 sons and perhaps 1 or more daughters, viz: — (1) Jehu2, b. .., 1624, about (as his father i 
specifically mentioned as Jehu Burr the elder on April 10, 1645, it is assumed that his son had on or aboi 
this date attained his majority), in .... England, probably; d. .... 1692; m. (1) Mary Ward; m. (2) Estht 
(...) Boosey, — (2) John2, b. . . . 1633, about ("aged about 48 years in February, 1681-2") m. Sarah Fitch,- 

(3) NATHANIEL2, b 1640, about; d. Feb. 26, 1712; m. (1) SARAH WARD; m. (2) HANNA1 

(GOODYEAR) WAKEMAN (see below) ,—(4) Daniel2, b. ... 1642 (he was "aged about 40 in Novembe 
1682"); m. (1) ...; m. (2) Dec. 11, 1678, Abigail Glover, — (5) Elizabeth2 (perhaps) who possibly m. Sergeai 
Nehemiah Olmstead, who d. before 1671. 

The above mentioned 4 sons are all the children of Jehuel Burr of whom we have specific mention b 
name. The lapse of time (1624-1633) between the dates of birth of the first and second sons of Jehuel Bur 
and the lapse of time (1633-1640) between the births of the second and third of his sons, suggests the birth < 
other children between 1624-1633 and 1633-1640, of which children we have no specific record. But in th 
settlement of the lands of Sergeant Nehemiah Olmstead who died before 1671 land is spoken of which r 
purchased from his brother-in-law Jehue Burr, which suggests that Nehemiah Olmstead had married Elizabet] 
daughter of Jehuel Burr (see Schenck's History of Fairfield, Vol. I, pp. 359-61). 

2. Nathaniel 2 Burr, b. ..., 1640, about (he was made a freeman in 1664, and therefore must hav 
been at least 21 years of age that year; he for that reason must have been born a 
early as 1643, and probably earlier; the Burr Genealogy, p. 133, states that he was bor 
in 1640), at Springfield, Mass. (probably as his father Jehue 1 Burr was living there i 
1640); d. Feb. 22 (or 26), 1712, at Fairfield, Conn.; he m. (1) ..., at Fairfield, Com 
(probably), Sarah 2 Ward (daughter of Andrew 1 and Esther — or Hester — (Shermar 
Ward of Fairfield, Conn.), b. . . ., 1642, at. . . ? (Stamford, Conn., probably, as her fatht 

Andrew 1 Ward was located there in 1642); d. ..., at ...; he m. (2) Oct 1691 

about, at New Haven, Conn., to Hannah (Goodyear) WakemanJ (daughter of Deput 

Governor Stephen Goodyear of New Haven, Conn.), b at ...; d 1721 (Admii 

istration on her estate was granted Nov. 7, 1721), at Fairfield, Conn., probably. 

Res.: Fairfield, Conn. He was made a freeman by the General Assembly held at Hartford, Oct. 13, 1664; he w 
elected Constable at Fairfield, Conn., in 1669; he was a Deputy to the Connecticut General Assembly in 1692- 
He administered the estate of Eliphalet Hall in 1667. 

Children: 8 (BURR), 3 sons and 5 daughters, all by his first wife, viz: — (1) Nathaniels, b. ... (before 1665); 
.... 1700-02; m. Susannah Lockwood (daughter of Joseph and Isabelle (Beacham) Lockwood of Fairfiel 
Conn.), — (2) Abigails, b. ...; who m. March 22, 1693, John Wheeler of Fairfield, Conn, (as his 2nd wife 
—(3) JOHNS, b. May 2, 1673; d. June 13, 1750;. m. (1) DEBORAH BARLOW; m. (2) ELIZABET 

(HAWLEY) WAKEMAN (see below),— (4) Daniel3, b. ...; m. Mary Jennings,— (5) Anna3, b 1675- 

d. March 14, 1747-8, aged 72 years; m. Jan. 20, 1696, Gideon Allen, — (6) MaryS, b. ...; who m. Dr. Jam 

t Both the Burr Genealogy, p. 134 and tha Wakeman Genealogy, p. 161, agree in stating that NathanieU Burr i 
as his second wife, the widow of the Rev. Samuel Wakeman. The Wakeman Genealogy states that she was Hann: 
(Goodyear) Wakeman, widow of the Rev. Samuel Wakeman, and the Burr Genealogy states that she was Ann, wide 
of Rev. Samuel Wakeman, and dau. of Dr. James Laborie. Schenck's History of Fairfield, Vol. I, p. 361, states th 
Nathaniel2 Burr's second wife was Ann, dau. of Dr. James Laborie, and the same volume, p. 417, states that Hanna 
widow of Rev. Samuel Wakeman, left a large estate of £900. So it seems that according to the preponderance of e- 
dence that Rev. Samuel Wakeman's widow was named Hannah, and there is no evidence beyond the statement in t 
Burr Genealogy and Schenck's, Vol. I, p. 361, that her name was Ann; nor is there any evidence Rev. Samuel Wakem, 
ever had but one wife, viz: Hannah (Goodyear) Wakeman, who is reported as having survived her husband, and who 
in 1721 (administration on her estate being granted Nov. 7, 1721). If all the above is correct (and at this writing I I 
lieve it to be correct) then Nathaniel2 Burr m. as his second wife, Hannah (Goodyear) Wakeman, the only wife a: 
the widow of Rev. Samuel Wakeman. She survived Nathaniel2 Burr (who d. Feb. 26, 1712) and d. in 1721 (administi 
tion on her estate granted Nov. 7, 1721) leaving an estate of £900. Nathaniel2 Burr's second wife was Hannah, n 
Ann; and I see before me no evidence that she was a dau. of Dr. James Laborie. The question as to who was the seco 
wife of Nathaniel2 Burr, seems to have been confused by the various genealogists, but I think my presentment of t 
case is (in the absence of positive evidence to the contrary) correct. In so far as this pedigree is concerned, who Nathj 
iel2 Burr's second wife was is not material as all of the authorities agree that all of the children of Nathaniel2 Bt 
were by his first wife Sarah (Ward) Burr.

Res.: Col. Johns Burr lived within the limits of the present township of Bridgeport, Conn, (then called Stratfield — 
Pequonnock or Poquonnock) ; he was closely identified with the interests of Fairfield and held many positions 
of trust there. He was the Commissary for Fairfield County in 1704, in Queen Anne's War; he represented 
Fairfield as Deputy to the General Assembly in 1704-5, 1708, 1710-14, 1717-1724. In October, 1723 he was 
elected Speaker of the House of Deputies and again in 1724. He audited the accounts of the Treasurer 
of the Connecticut Colony in 1717, 1720 and 1725; he was elected a Justice of the Peace in 1711, 1714-25; 
he was an Assistant to the Governor in 1729-42, and was present at the Assistants' Courts continuously 
1729-1740. He was Judge of the Fairfield County Court, 1726-1743; Judge of Probate for the Fairfield 
District, 1726-1743. He was Captain of the Fairfield Train Band in 1714; he was appointed Major of the 
military forces in the expedition against Port Royal, Nova Scotia in 1710 and was Colonel of the 4th 
Connecticut Regiment inl739. His will was dated April 26, 1750, and in it he mentions his wife Elizabeth 
and refers to their marriage covenant dated March 29, 1727; he also mentions his daughters Abigail Hubbell 
and Mary Smedly, and also his grandsons Ebenezer, William and David Dimon, children of his daughter 
Mary (Burr-Dimond-Smedley), and also his sons John* Burr, William* Burr and his son Joseph* Burr. 
His widow's (Elizabeth (Hawley) Wakeman-Burr) will was proved Aug. 27, 1753. The inventory of Johns 
Burr's estate was executed Dec. 18, 1750, and amounted to £15,288.

(11) Priscilla2, bapt. ...?; m. Thomas Richards. 

All of the above named children (with the exception of John2, first, and Isaac2) are mentioned in the 
will of their father dated Aug. 19, 1626; and on that date it is made evident by the will that his daughters, 
Mary2, Sarah2 and Martha2 were married and Anne2, Hester2 and Priscilla2 were not married. His sons-in-law 
Richard Hubbell, John Wowen and William Davies (or Davis) are mentioned in the will, and his son John2, 
second, was left sole executor. 

2. John 2 Wakeman,! b. ..., 1601; bapt. March 29, 1601, both at Bewdley, Eng.; d 1661 (be- 

tween June 18, 1660 when his will was dated and Sept. 14, 1661 when the inventory oi 
his estate was taken), at Hartford, Conn.; m. Jan. 28, 1628-9, at Bewdley, Eng., Elizabeth 
Hopkins (daughter of William and Helen (Vickaris) Hopkins of Ribbesford, Worcester- 
shire, Eng., who were m. Oct. 30, 1609), bapt. Oct. ..., 1610, in Ribbesford Church, Rib- 
besford, Eng.; d 1657-8, at New Haven, Conn., and was buried there, gravestone. 

Res.: Bewdley, Eng., until 1638; came over to New England arriving in 1638 at New Haven, Conn., where he was madt 
a freeman, June 4, 1639. He was a deacon in the First Church, New Haven, Conn. He was a Deputy to tht 
General Court at New Haven, 1641-1647, 1655, 1656, 1658; he was- appointed to audit the accounts of tht 
Colonial Treasurer, 1645, 1647, 1648. He was appointed Colonial Treasurer, 1654-1660; and was appointed J 
Magistrate, May 29, 1661, but did not take the oath of office. He served on most of the important Com 
mittees of the Colonial Government from 1641 till his death. His wife Elizabeth (Hopkins) Wakeman was 
allotted a seat in the New Haven Church in February, 1656, and her name is not mentioned in the next allot 
ment of seats; her name is not mentioned in the will of John2 Wakeman dated June 18, 1660; hence it is 
assumed that she died between February ..., 1656 and June 18, 1660; and therefore two stones which ar< 
located in the grave yard in rear of the Center Church, New Haven (see Wakeman Genealogy, p. 67) anc 
marked respectively E. W. 1658 and E. W. 1657-8, are supposed to be the head and foot stones of her grave 
John2 Wakeman in his will mentions: his son Samuel3 Wakeman, his daughters Helena Talcott and Elizabetl 
Ketchell, his sons-in-law John Talcott of Hartford and Samuel Kitchell, and his sister Anna (Wakeman)

have been born as early as 1643, and probably earlier; the Burr Genealogy, p. 133, states 
that he was born in 1640), at Springfield, Mass., (probably, as his father Jehue 1 Burr

father Andrew 1 Ward was located there in 1642); d. ..., at ...? 

Res.: He was at Harvard College for a time but left the College in 1655 without taking his degree as Bachelor of Arts, 
on account of a disagreement with the faculty of the college as to the length of time necessary to study at 
Harvard in order to obtain his degree of B. A. He lived at New Haven for a time, where he was married 
and where his first child was born; he removed to Fairfield, Conn., where he was elected pastor of the church, 
Sept. 30, 1665 (he having been probably there previous to that date as the assistant of the Rev. John Jones, 
his predecessor as pastor in Fairfield, who died in January, 1665). He remained pastor at Fairfield until his 
death March 8, 1692. Rev. Samuel3 Wakeman made his will March 8, 1692 on the very day of his death; and 
his inventory was taken on April 8, 1692. In his will he mentions his sons John, Joseph and Jabesh and his 
daughter Mary, no mention is made of his sons Samuel and Ebenezer who had predeceased him, nor of his 
daughters Ann and Elizabeth.

Lord Saye and Seal as private secretary, and came to America early in the spring of 1636' " "Recusant 
signifies refusal to subscribe to the. oath of conformity to the established Church of England, which re- 
quired acknowledgment of the King as the head of the Church instead of the Pope. The Puritans would 
(not subscribe on oath to either and hence their emigration. Thomas Welles was secretary to Lord Saye

1. Major Simon 1 Willard*, b 1605; bapt. April 7, 1605, both at Horsemonden, County Kent, 

England; d. April 24, 1676, at Charlestown, Mass., "having just passed his seventy 
first birthday"; m. (1) ..., in Horsemonden, England (possibly), Mary Sharpe (daugh- 
ter of Henry and Jane (Feylde) Sharpe of Horsemonden, Kent, Eng.), b. ...; bapt. 
Oct. 16, 1614, Horsemonden, Eng.; d. . . . (after May ..., 1634, as she is supposed to 
have come over to this country with her husband), at ... (Cambridge or Concord, 
Mass.). He m. (2) ..., at .... Elizabsth Dunster (daughter of Henry Dunster of Bury, 
Lancashire, England and sister of Henry Dunster, who was the President of Harvard 

t College, 1640-1654), b Bury, Lancashire, Eng.; d. ... (about a year after her 

marriage), at . . . (Concord, Mass., probably). -He m. (3) ..., at ..., Mary Dunster, 
as her first husband (daughter of Robert and Mary (Gerrett) Dunster of Bury, Lan- 
cashire, Eng., and a cousin of his second wife), bapt. Dec. 15, 1630, Bury, Lancashire, 
Eng.; d. Dec. 28, 1715, aged 85, at Sudbury, Eng. After the death of Major Simon 1 Wil- 

Ilard, she m. (2) July 14, 1680, Deacon Joseph Noyes of Sudbury, Mass. (as his second 
wife and whose first wife was Mary Darvell), b. ..., at ...?; d. Nov. 16, 1717, Sud- 
bury, Mass. 

IRes. : Horsemonden, England. He is described in the early days of his emigration to this country as a "Kentish sol- 
dier." He came over to this country in 1634, arriving here in May of that year, as Mrs. Elizabeth Bacon of 
Hartford, Conn., testified in Court that she arrived in New England in the month of May, 1634, and that "Mr. 
Willard and others of good account were passengers^ on the same ship." He settled at Cambridge, Mass., 
where on June 4, 163S, one hundred acres of land with a house thereon is recorded as belonging to him. On 
Aug. 25, 1635 he sold his 100 acres and house and moved to Concord, Mass. He is supposed to have brought 
his first wife Mary (Sharpe) Willard and at least one daughter (Mary) with him to this country. The records 
do not make it clear as to which of his wives were the mother of his children, but as it is supposed that his 
second wife died one year after marriage, his children must have been largely by his first and third wives. 
Somewhere about 1660-61 he removed to Lancaster, Mass., where the last four of his children were born. He 
was a Deputy to the General Court of Massachusetts Bay in 1636-42, 1645-6, 1649-1653. He was an Assistant 
to the Governor, 1654-1675. He was a Commissioner to lay out the Northern Boundary of Massachusetts in 
1652. He was a Lieutenant in the Concord Company in 1636, and a Captain in 1646. He was Sergeant Major 
of the Middlesex Companies in 1653; and was made Major and Commander-in-Chief of the forces of the United 
Colonies against Ninigret in 1654. 
. Children: 17 (WILLARD), 9 sons and 8 daughters; the first child having been born in England and being by the 

first wife; how many more were by the first wife is not known, but it is inferred from the birth entries in 
Concord, Mass., that the last 10 children were by his 3rd wife and possibly that all of the preceding 7 children 
were by his first wife, viz: — (1) Mary2, b. ... (prior to 1634), in England; d. ..., 1656-61; m. ..., 1648-

At the conclusion of the lecture James Benedict, Esq., moved a vote of thanks to 
the lecturer which motion was duly seconded by George Riker Bishop, Esq., and unani- 
mously carried. Mr. Bowen voiced the thanks of the Society, and the meeting there- 
upon adjourned to the library for refreshments. 

A Regular Meeting of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society was 
held on Friday evening, January 5th, 1923, at 8:30 P. M., the President, Clarence Win- 
throp Bowen, in the chair. 

Mr. Bowen announced that since the last meeting held on December 8, 1922, the 
Society had lost by death the following named members, viz: Lucius K Wilmerding, 
who died December 8, 1922, aged 74 years, and Mrs. William B. Dinsmore, who died 
December 22, 1922, aged 78 years. Mr. Bowen spoke feelingly of the loss to the Society 
in the deaths of these two members as both had evinced in life the greatest interest in the 
progress and betterment of the Society. 

Mr. Bowen also announced the election of the following members, viz : — Warner M. 
Van Nbrden and John Henry Wood, both proposed by Clarence Winthrop Bowen, and 
Edward F. Weed, Mrs. George Rowland and Mrs. Kate Hammond Fogarty, all proposed 
by John R Totten. 

It was also announced that the following named members had been transferred from 
the list of Annual to that of Life Members, viz : — Miss Lucy Dubois Akerly and William 
Seton Gordon. 

The Chair then introduced the guest of the Society and the speaker of the evening, 
Lawrence Park, Esquire, of Groton, Mass., who delivered to the Society a most interesting 
illustrated lecture on "Some Facts Regarding Joseph Blackburn, Portrait Painter." The 
subject matter of the lecture was of engrossing interest and the portrait plate illustra- 
tions added graphic emphasis to the text. As may be seen from the beautiful portrait 
plate illustrations in the work "Major Thomas Savage of Boston and his Descendants," 
by Lawrence Park (the lecturer), Mr. Park is an authority on the early portrait painters 
of Massachusetts. A vote of thanks to the speaker was moved by Edward McKinstry 
Whiting, Esq., and was seconded by John M. Gardner, Esq., and unanimously carried. 
After which the meeting adjourned for refreshments. 

The Annual Meeting of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society was 
held in the Society's Hall, Friday evening, February 9, 1923, at 8.30 P. M. In the ab- 
sence of the President of the Society, the First Vice-President, William Isaac Walker, 
Esq., presided.

Hoagland was transferred from the list of Annual Members to that of Life Members. 
Stanwood Edwards Flitner, Annual Member, proposed by John R. Totten. 

The Chair announced the death of Mrs. George Dupont Pratt, an Annual Member 
of the Society, who died January 5, 1923, aged 45 years. 

Captain John R. Totten, the Chairman of the Executive Committee, in the absence 
of various officials on account of sickness and absence from the city, made a brief ad- 
dress analyzing the treasurer's report for 1 1922, which showed the Society to be in a 
most prosperous condition. 

Mr. Edwin H. Denby, the Chairman of the Nominating Committee then presented 
247 proxies that had been cast for the regular ticket nominated for Trustees for the 
term 1923-26; and stated that no opposition ticket had been proposed. 

Those members of the Society present who had not deposited their proxies with 
the Nominating Committee were then requested to cast their ballots. Whereupon it was 
moved by Edward McKinstry Whiting, Esq., and duly seconded that Mr. Denby be 
authorized to cast one vote for the ticket as nominated. This motion was put by the 
Presiding Officer, and duly seconded and unanimously carried.

The presiding officer then announced these elections for the term specified. 

Mr. Walker then introduced as the speaker of the evening, Hon. Howard R. Bayne, 
the former Historian of the Society of the Sons of the Revolution, and the author of 
"The Administration of John Adams". Mr. Bayne gave a most interesting address on 
"The Settlement of Jamestown, 1607". At the conclusion of the address a vote of 
thanks to Mr. Bayne was most felicitously voiced by Mr. Whiting and seconded by 
George Riker Bishop, Esq., which vote was unanimously carried. The presiding offi- 
cer then expressed to Mr. Bayne the thanks of the Society for his most enjoyable and 
instructive address.

SPECIAL NOTICE. 



SCHOHARIE COUNTY, N. Y., GENEALOGICAL DATA. 

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society has acquired by purchase 
the genealogical works of Henry Cady, deceased, formerly one of its Corresponding 
Members. His obituary notice in the April, 1920 number of the RECORD contains 
more specific mention of his life work in compiling the genealogies of nearly all of the 
settlers of Schoharie County prior to the Revolution, as well as the death records from 
all of the older gravestones in the county. For many years Henry Cady was recognized 
as the leading genealogist in Schoharie County. Many of the descendants of the early 
families have been admitted to membership in our patriotic societies by virtue of pedi- 
grees made' out by Henry Cady during his lifetime. 

The Cady Collection consists of ten bound folio manuscript volumes, containing 
about three hundred pages each.

BOOK REVIEWS. 

By John R. Totten. 

Editorial Note:— The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society solicits as donations to 
its Library all newly published works on Genealogy, History and Biography, as well as all works on Town, 
County and State History, or works embodying information regarding the Vital Records of any and all localities. 
It also solicits the donation to the manuscript collections of its library of any and all manuscript compilations 
which bear upon the above mentioned topics. 

In consideration of such donations the works so presented to the Society will be at once placed upon 
the shelves of its library and will be reviewed in the next subsequent issue of The New York Genealogical 
and Biographical Record, each donation of such character, whether in printed or manuscript form, will 
be reviewed under the head of "Book Notices" and a copy of The Record containing the review will be sent 
to the donor. 

The Society does not solicit donations of publications or manuscripts on topics foreign to the above men - 
tioned subjects, as its library is specialized and cannot accommodate material which does not bear directly 
upon its recognized sphere of usefulness. 

Donations for review in the January issue of The Record should be delivered to the Society before 
December 1st of the previous year; for the April issue, before March 1st; for the July issue before June 1st; 
and for the October issue, before September 1st. 

AH donations will be generously reviewed with a view of calling the attention of the public to their good 
points; but, while generous, the reviews will contain such proper criticism as the interest of the genealogical 
student would expect from the editorial staff of The Record. 

The " Book Notices " of The Record are carefully read by all librarians as well as genealogical 
students. 

Letters of transmittal of donations of such works should embody the price of the work donated and

It was our pleasure to give an advance notice of this work in the advertising sec- 
tion of this publication in January, 1922. The volume is how before us and thoroughly 
fulfills the promise of that! notice. The work is compiled on standard genealogical lines 
and the printing, paper, index, illustrations and binding are such as to place the volume 
in the group of first class genealogical productions. 

The genealogical or main portion of the work is exhaustively treated and will be 
of the greatest value to all those of Boone and •collateral blood lines and will be a 
notable addition to the shelves of genealogical libraries. The biographical sketch of 
Daniel Boone is of marked interest and cannot fail to throw new light upon this noted 
pioneer. The English origin of the family is adequately set forth in the first part of 
the volume and authenticated by photographic reproductions of the family genealogy (as 
then known) written by James Boone (son of James and Mary Boone) who was born 
January 26, 1743-4 (old style) or February 6 (new style). The illustrations are artistic 
in value and add graphic interest to the text. In short the work is first class, reflecting 
great credit upon the compiler (whose labors in its behalf were inspired by love of the 
task), and also upon the mechanical producers of the volume, the Turtle Company, to 
both of whom we proffer our congratulations.

Book Reviews. [April 



"With the founding of the colony of Virginia in 1607 the history of the American 
nation may be said to have begun, and the record of the development of that colony into 
a prosperous and powerful commonwealth affords reading of the most fascinating sort. 
Nor is the story of the people who were responsible for this rise to wealth and emin- 
ence of less interest, for the term of F. F. V. has long since come to have international 
recognition. 

Thomas Jefferson Wertenbaker now disproves the boast of his fellow Virginians 
that many of their ancestors were substantial planters and property owners from the 
time of the founding of the colony; and the result is somewhat startling, for by so do- 
ing he dispels the pleasant century-old illusion regarding the renowned 'First Families.' 
Complete rent rolls of the Virginia counties for the year 1704 add greatly to the inter- 
est and value of the volume." 



History of Rome [the County seat] and of Floyd County, Georgia. Including 
Numerous Incidents of more than local interest, 1540-1922, by George Magruder Battey, 
Jr. Atlanta, Ga. 1922. Press of The Webb ancTVary Company. Octavo, cloth, Vol. 
I, pp. 640. Price $6.00 (to libraries $5.00). Address: Author, No. 81 West 14th Street, 
Atlanta, Ga. 

We have seldom read a more enjoyable county and town history than that described 
above. Town and County histories are plentiful enough treating of counties and towns 
north of the Mason and Dixon line, but those giving information relative to our sis- 
ter towns and counties of the South are rare and therefore the more to be welcomed. 
This particular history while giving in condensed shape the salient points of the local 
history involved, lets us in at the same time to an enlightening and edifying picture of 
local conditions and developments. The worlc is more than instructive, it is readable. 

From a genealogical standpoint it has many features of merit, chief amongst which 
we may mention a number of pages devoted to the perpetuation of graveyard inscriptions 
from Myrtle Hill Cemetery, South Rome, Ga. (1,500 inscriptions, about one-sixth of 
the total) from 1874 to September, 1922, and also some from other cemeteries in the 
county.

Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of New York. Fifth Record 
Book, issued September, 1922. Octavo, cloth, pp. 244 including an index of members 
and 19 illustrations. No price stated. Library valuation $5.00. Address: the Society, 
No. 44 East 23rd Street, N. Y. City. 

This volume, which is most excellent in its form of presentation is after all is said 
and done merely a list of the members of the Society in the State of New York, to- 
gether with a setting forth of the By-Laws governing the Society, and somewhat en- 
livened in appearance by portrait illustrations of its various officers. 

Societies such as the Mayflower, Colonial Wars, Colonial Dames, Sons and Daugh- 
ters of the Revolution and other lineage societies, in the official blanks that are submitted 
and scrutinized prior to the admission of members, have in those blanks a source of 
carefully digested genealogical information, tfiat, in the interest of those fundamental 
motives for which such societies are maintained, and for the personal satisfaction of the 
members themselves and their descendants, should be perpetuated in printed form and 
in considerable detail as regards the vital facts of each generation of ascent of a mem- 
ber back to the qualifying ancestor. For example, it is of very little satisfaction for 
a member to be informed in print that he or she as the case may be is ninth in descent 
from Stephen Hopkins. On the other hand if such a member was recorded in each vol- 
ume as a descendant of Stephen Hopkins by a line of descent which set forth the pro- 
genitors of each generation back to the qualifying ancestor, then such a volume would 
be of distinct genealogical value, and such value would increase in direct proportion to 
the amount of vital information recorded relative to each generation. 

Volumes presented in this suggested form by the various patriotic lineage societies 
would be of the greatest genealogical value and would be eagerly sought by all libraries 
maintaining genealogical sections. The dissemination of such information would do 
more to stimulate the growth of such societies than any other form of propaganda, as 
such volumes would bear the information to countless non-members that individuals of 
their own ancestry were members of these various societies and therefore they them- 
selves were by blood also entitled to become members. 

We realize that publication of lineage books of members in the form suggested is a 
matter of considerable expense; but until such time as a plan of this nafure is adopted 
the year books are of no genealogical value whatever, and a great deal of unnecessary 
expense in printing could be obviated by simply printing a list of the members without 
the valueless elaboration which at the present time encumbers the great majority of 
such volumes.

"The French Revolution, A Historical Sketch," by Walter Geer, author of 
Napoleon the First, Napoleon the Third, etc.. Octavo, cloth, pp. xx + 413, including 
Genealogical Table of the Bourbons, the Revolutionary Calendar, Chronology, Bib- 
liography and Index. Illustrated by fifteen full page portrait plates and six maps and 
plans. Copyrighted 1922. Price $5.00. Address Publishers, Brentano's, 27th Street 
and 5th Avenue, N. Y. City. 

Walter Geer, well known for his biographies of the First and Third Napoleons, has 
given us, in this "historical sketch," a most scholarly and judicial piece of work, and what 
is perhaps no less important an eminently readable one. Most readers in the English- 
speaking world have gained their knowledge of the French Revolution from Carlyle's 
; work, which Mr. Geer assures us is a "prose epic," rather than a history, and far from 

accurate in view of much that has been brought to light since, its publication. 

Mr. Geer does not hesitate to upset many well established ideas. He finds his ex- 
planation for the Revolution in the errors of the Government throughout the long reigns 
of Louis XIV and Louis XV rather than in the writings of Rousseau and Voltaire and 
other philosophers. Only one man out of twenty in France at that time could read or 
write, and it was the illiterate masses, not the educated classes, who caused the Revolution. 

As to the destruction of the Bastille, which has given France its "Fourth of July" 
celebration, Mr. Geer says: "No event in history has teen more often misrepresented 
and more generally misunderstood. An enterprise which was one of pure brigandage 
has been hailed as a revolt of the good citizens of Paris against the despotism of the 
Crown. The act of a mob of bandits has been transformed into a deed of heroes." 

Fittingly enough Mr. Geer begins his story of the Revolution by providing the back- 
ground in the reign of Louis XIV, who died in 1715 in the great palace he had built at 
Versailles, after reigning for seventy-two years, and "in the reign of Louis XV, who 
died in 1774, after being king a full half century. But that is all to provide a back- 
ground. The real story begins with Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, and naturally 
most of the volume is devoted to the tempestuous decade between 1789 and the advent 
of Napoleon Bonaparte in 1799, 

What is the justification of the present volume? Not its mode of attack nor its 
general form. Others have recognized the French Revolution as evolution; these same 
others have included an equal length of time in development of their themes. The 
justification lies in Mr. Geer's fine ability to visualize a distant event, to see its people, 
to breathe its atmosphere and to express — as much as one man may — its spirit. 

Characters stand outin perspective. Louis XVI is followed from his clumsy, back- 
ward, convictionless youth to his clumsy, backward, misguided maturity; he had the 
best of intentions, but possessed neither the courage nor ability to achieve them; he 
had not even the one virtue of some weak monarchs — the uncanny sense of choosing 
strong advisers. There was perhaps nothing more characteristic of his career than 
the rumbling drums that drowned out his last phrases — phrases uttered too late. 

Marie Antoinette is no less thoroughly drawn; her balance of weaknesses and 
virtues is reasonably ponderable. Writing of her girlhood Mr. Geer says simply: "With 
her the savoir-faire took the place of the savoir. In fine, she was a woman." 

Unfortunately, she was not a good woman. 

One might continue indefinitely in suggesting the hundreds of characterizations; 
so complete are the descriptions as to recall Balzac. There are no mere names, con- 
venient historical pegs, but people; here is a sizeable canvas, if you will, a mass por- 
trait with every face distinct 

Some idols fall ; a few balloons are pricked. There is La Fayette, for instance, 
a gawky, red-haired boy, very vain, very proud, whose sheer oafish niaiserie offended 
the queen; and La Fayette returned from far-away America only to spoil his glow- 
ing past with the inexcusable silly egoism of an overnight hero. Of the pricked balloons 
are Petion and Barras; and there are more. 

There are intimate pictures by the score ; there are anecdotes ; there are minute 
descriptions of those Paris localities in which revolutionaries gathered — one sees the 
swarming Palais-Royal of a sweltering summer night, the fall of the Bastille, the en- 
virons and apartments of Versailles; there is an unexpressed element of suspense. Ap- 
parently, no student of revolution can escape the somber terror of his subject, nor its 
sanguine but often misplaced idealism. 

Mr. Geer makes his narrative clearer and more effective by treating events in sev- 
eral parallel series rather than in chronological sequence. 

In conclusion it may be said without reservation that Mr. Geer has produced a 
book that will be interesting, even fascinating, to all lovers of good literature. It is a 
notable historical work.

Bepartment for Registration of ^eoigms. 



Conducted by JOHN REYNOLDS TOTTEN. 



THE NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY 
conducts a department for the purpose of examining, approving and 

publishing pedigrees of individual applicants. 

The Society will accept for examination the pedigree of ANY INDI- 
VIDUAL, whether a member of the Society or not. 

Those desiring to take advantage of the facilities thus offered should apply 
to the Society for the authorized blank form on which to record the pedigree to 
be submitted for examination (enclosing $1.00 in payment for the blank). 

Applicants must either themselves, or with the assistance of professional 
genealogists, fill in the form as indicated and return the same to this Society for 
examination; it being understood that the regular charges made by this Society 
are for examination and publication of the pedigree, and do not include genea- 
logical research in the preparation of the pedigree itself. 

When a pedigree is submitted for examination the applicant must send with 
it a preliminary fee of $25.00 Upon the receipt of a pedigree and this preliminary 
fee, the pedigree will be examined; and, if approved, it will be subsequently 
published in an issue of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Record, and the applicant will receive 1 copy of the Record containing the pedi- 
gree without further charge. 

Pedigrees must be submitted to the Society in form complete for publication. 
If, upon examination by the Society, essential facts are added to the pedigree by 
the examiner, a nominal fee, not to exceed $10.00, will be charged by the Society 
for ascertaining and embodying such additional information in the pedigree. 

If, upon examination, the pedigree is found to be essentially inaccurate, it will 
not be approved and will be returned to the applicant ; and the preliminary fee will 
be refunded, less a charge of $20.00 for expert examination. 

If, when finally examined, approved and prepared for publication, the pedi- 
gree is found to require more than one page for its proper presentation, the fee 
for publishing the same, as above explained, will be at the rate of $25.00 a page 
(pages to be similar in size and form to those of pedigrees heretofore published in 
the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, — see issues from 
April, 191 1, to date of this issue), but, in adjusting the final charge, credit for the 
payment of the preliminary fee of $25.00 will be given to the applicant. 

For the benefit of applicants desiring extra copies of their pedigrees for 
family distribution, editions of 50 copies of such pedigrees will be supplied on 
4 page folders of linen ledger paper, with space left for additional notes, for 
a fee of $20.00. 

Individuals desiring their pedigrees prepared for examination, approval 
and later publication by this Society, and who are unfamiliar with the methods 
to pursue to secure the necessary information to establish such pedigrees, or 
who are unable to devote the required time to their preparation, — are invited 
to address this Society with a view to being put in communication with a 
professional genealogist capable of establishing and submitting them (when 
established) in proper form to this Society for publication. 

Applications for examination, approval and publishing pedigrees under the 
condition hereabove set forth should be made to the 

NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY,

Genealogical Chart and List of Direct Ancestors 



A Blank Form for Listing Records of 
Direct Ancestry 

This GENEALOGICAL CHART which is designed to give a place and a 
number for all direct ancestors up to and including the tenth generation back 
from the first or present, is shown as a disk or circumference, divided in cir- 
cular zones A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I and J, each representing a generation 
complete in itself, and a LIST of ANCESTORS also divided into generations 
marked correspondingly to the zones and numbers in the Chart providing 
spaces for the entering of Names and Dates of births, marriages and deaths, 
for each ancestor. 

In the Chart, "A" is the present generation located in the Center of the 
circumference for the Filler-in of the Chart or Self; B is the Second, and is 
divided in two spaces, Nos. 2 and 3, for FATHER and MOTHER; C is 
the Third, divided in four spaces, Nos. 4, 5, 6 and 7, for the four GRAND- 
PARENTS; D is the Fourth, divided in eight spaces, Nos. 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 
13, 14 and 15, for the eight GREAT-GRANDPARENTS, etc., etc. 

To fill in the Chart proceed as follows: 

Enter OWN NAME in List under PRESENT GENERATION No. 1 
and check the letter A in chart. 

Enter FATHER'S NAME in List under SECOND GENERATION 
No. 2 and check the No. 2 in Chart. 

Enter MOTHER'S NAME in List under SECOND GENERATION 
No. 3 and check the No. 3 in Chart. 

Enter GRANDFATHER'S NAME in List under THIRD GENERA- 
TION No. 4 and check the No. 4 in Chart. 

etc., etc., and proceed to fill the List, as far as records may allow, and place 
a check mark (/) near each of the corresponding numbers in the spaces of the 
Chart. 

This system of charting Ancestry gives, at a glance, a picture of what 
one has, and what one needs. The check marks on the Chart indicate the 
ancestors found; those that have no check marks remain to be looked up. 
The relationship between one name and another can be told immediately by 
reference to the Chart taken in conjunction with the List. Each ancestor is 
listed under a number, which can serve for further indexing and filing of 
biographical matter concerning his name. This tends to eliminate confusion 
between several ancestors of the same name in different generations. 

The Chart blanks are reproduced from an original drawing by special 
process in black on heavy white drawing paper. The outside dimensions are 
16" x 32". The price is $1.50 per copy. Send order with accompanying 
check to

REGISTERS OF PEDIGREES 

Form Copyrighted and recommended by this Society 

This Society bai copyrighted and has for sale a printed blank genealogical chart called "Register 
of Pedigrees." These registers are of two varieties, called "single" and "double" registers, respectivley. 
They are each bound volumes, 11 X 16 inches in size, properly ruled and printed for the insertion of the 
names and vital records in successive generations of ancestors of the individual using the forms. 

The "single" Registers consist of 17 leaves (34 pages), and when rilled in will give all of the ancestors 
of the individual in all ramifications for 9 generations, arranged so that the family name of each of the 16 
great-great-grandparents of the individual occupies a full page. Family names appear on the marginal index, 
which is formed by the indentation of each leaf. The back of each leaf is arranged for special memoranda 
concerning the correspondingly numbered individual on the front of same leaf. 

The "double" Registers are practically two "single" Registers combined, consisting of 34 leaves 
(68 pages). The object being to permit the individual to devote the first half of the Register to the registration 
of the complete record of his male line of ascent; the second half for a like registration of his female line of 
ascent. The "double" Register therefore provides for the registration of to full generations in both the 
male and female lines. 

These Registers have been revised and improved in form and a new edition of the same is now ready 
for sale. In this new edition we have issued one-half in the old form of permanent binding in paper and 
cloth as heretofore; and one-half in "loose leaf" cloth binding. The loose leaf cloth binding is an improve- 
ment on the old form of permanent binding as it permits the indefinite extension of the "Register" to 
include the recording of as many generations of ascent as the individual can establish. 

The entire edition is printed on extra quality of linen ledger paper.

Individuals who purchase these Registers and fill them in carefully and as fully as possible, may present 
the same to this Society, and if found to be properly recorded they will be filed amongst the manuscript 
records, and the individual will receive a new blank Register in exchange for the same gratis. It is the desire 
of the Trustees that members of the Society supply themselves with these Registers, fill them out as fully as 
possible, and file them with the Society. They will be bound from time to time in volumes fully indexed and 
will thus form a record of great value to genealogists. Those who have in their possession information 
relative to their individual ancestry are urged to secure these Registers, fill them in and file them with the 
Society, as information of this nature is frequently lost to posterity owing to negligence on the part of those 
possessing such information to record the same in recognized depositories provided for that purpose. 



INDIVIDUAL GENEALOGICAL RECORD BLANKS: These blanks are printed by the 
Society for the purpose of furnishing genealogists a means of recording on a single sheet 
all of that which may properly be regarded as the genealogical record of an individual. 
Price, 2 cents each or $2.00 a hundred. 

These Registers and Blanks may be purchased from

THE OLDEST BURIAL GROUND IN THE TOWN OF 
HEMPSTEAD, L. I. 



Contributed by John Dean Fish, 

36 Greenwich Street, Hempstead, L. I. 
Corresponding Member of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society. 



In the Autumn of 1643, two New England men, Rev. Robert Fordham 
and John Carman, with their families, came across Long Island Sound from 
the New Haven Colony, to Nassau Island, which was then territory under 
Dutch control, but which to-day is known as Long Island in the State of 
New York. These men were the advance agents of a new emigration 
— representing families who had settled in Stamford, Connecticut, only 
five years earlier, but who were again seeking homes in a land where they 
might enjoy greater political and religious liberty. That year they secured 
from the Sachems of the native tribes of Indians a quit-claim deed of a 
section of land on the south shore of Long Island, which is now part of the 
Town of Hempstead. Near the present village of Merrick they made their 
homes and spent their first winter. 

The next summer a considerable number of the Stamford families came 
across the Sound, and scattered themselves and located their farms through- 
out the territory which, in the Dutch archives received the name of "Heem- 
stede." In the autumn of 1644, these settlers, recognizing the sovereignty 
of the Dutch, secured from Governor William Kieft of Manhattan, a grant 
of a larger and more clearly defined territory, extending from Long Island 
Sound to the Atlantic Ocean, and being about sixteen miles in length. 

As the men of this new settlement had previously been associated to- 
gether at Stamford, they now worked together in harmony, and speedily 
completed their new plans. Their farms were scattered over the large 
township, because they were mostly raisers of cattle and sheep. But, in 
a central place a "Town Spot" was located, where a "Fort" or palisado 
was constructed for protection against the Indians. Enclosed within the 
"Fort" was built a "meeting house," which thereafter was used on Sun- 
days as a place of worship, and at other times, when needed, for Town 
Meetings and the public business. This Fort, occupying a space of about 
six acres, was in the center of the modern village of Hempstead, on the 
east side of Main Street, extending from Fulton to Front Streets. 

On a corner north of and across Fulton Street, was located the Town's 
first Inn or Tavern, with an ample farm attached, which for two and a 
half centuries continued under the management of landlords of the names 
of Smith and Sammis. It was just east of this Tavern Farm that the earlv 
settlers set apart, out of the Common Lands of the Town, a Burial Ground 
which for many years was the common burial place of all the Hempstead 
families. 

The first book of Town Records of Hempstead, which came to be 
known as the "mouse eaten book", contained much detail, and manv inter- 



202 The Oldest Burial Ground in the Town of Hempstead, L. I. [July 

esting facts relating to the first fourteen years of the Town's history. 
This book has been lost. The latest occasion of its being used and quoted 
from was about one hundred years ago, when a lawsuit between the North 
and South sections of the divided Town of Hempstead was carried on ap- 
peal, up to the highest Court of the State, to settle the ownership of, and 
rights to, the Swamp lands on the South side. The evidence produced in 
this case showed that in 1647, three years after the Dutch charter was 
granted, there were sixty-seven families settled within the boundaries of 
the town. Within five years, the one hundred families required by the 
Dutch charter had been exceeded. 

Although the record of the beginnings of the Fort, the Meeting House, 
the Tavern and the Burial-ground, are lost with disappearance of the 
"mouse eaten book',' the earliest remaining book of records tells of them as 
accomplished facts. Under date of May 4, 1670, we find "It is ordered by 
the Constable and Overseers, that Simon Sering is to look to the burying 
place, and take the fines according as it is ordered for creatures they shall 
at any time find there, four pence a sheep, and twelve a hors and all other 
cattle, and six pence a swine." The method of protecting God's Acre 
seems later to have changed. The record of the Town Meeting held April 
1, 1740, says: — "Att ye same Town Meeting was ordered that Jerimian 
Bedle, Richard Bedle, Elias Dorland and John Dorland was to take care 
and fence ye Burial Ground lott, and to be paid out of ye Towns money by 
ye Trustees for their service." 

There were doubtless many interments in this ancient burying ground 
from the very beginning; but for a long time there seem to have been no 
inscribed stones or markers to identify the graves. The earliest stone 
found there twenty years ago, when the village authorities decided to con- 
vert the overcrowded and neglected space into a Public Park, and gave 
it the name of "Fulton Field," was a rough field stone bearing the roughly 
traced initials and date "R.S. 171 1." There were about two dozen similar 
rough and primitive markers. This lack of early memorial stones may be 
accounted for, doubtless, by the great difficulty and expense of obtaining 
cut stones. There are no quarries, or supplies of native stone upon Long 
Island. Of the markers brought from abroad, many have been destroyed. 
The action of the frost has wholly chipped off the face of many a sand- 
stone monument, and the lettering on many a weather-beaten stone is in- 
distinct. When soldiers of the British army, during the Revolutionary 
War, were stationed at Hempstead, and occupied the adjoining Presby- 
terian Meeting House for a riding school, it is said that many stones were 
used by them for making ovens, and the bread baked therein was marked 
with the name and record of one of Hempstead's departed townsmen. 
While we now have the record of only a portion of the graves in this old 
yard, it seems probable that at least two thousand of the earlier men, 
women and children of this town were laid to rest there. 

The title to this portion of the "common lands" ever remained in the 
Town of Hempstead, and it was for burial purposes only that plots were 
apportioned to the different families of the Town. When it was decided 
to convert this ground into a public park, a careful record was made from 
each gravestone, which is preserved in the office of the Village Clerk, to- 
gether with a map on which is indicated by number the location of 
each grave. Each stone was then buried over the body of the person of 
whom it was a memorial, and paths and benches were arranged upon, the 
graded and swarded acres. 

Four times have there been made extensions to the old Town Burial 
Ground, through private enterprise. By a deed dated April 22, 1766,

1923.] Inscriptions from Hempstead's Old Town Burial Ground. 203 

Nehemiah Sammis, the Inn-keeper and owner of the adjoining farm on the 
West, conveyed to the "Deacon's and Elders of the Presbyterian Church," 
a plot of land fronting on the Northerly side of Fulton Avenue where their 
present Church building is located — their third structure on that site. 
At about the time when the Church was located there, Mr. Sammis com- 
menced selling plots in the rear thereof for burial purposes. This would 
indicate that the ground set apart by the Town had been fully apportioned. 

Two more additions were made on the Westerly side, when in 1837, 
and again in 1844, the Trustees of the Presbyterian Church purchased from 
Henry Sammis, the son of Nehemiah, additional land extending to the pres- 
ent tracks and terminal of the Long Island Railroad. Ninety plots were 
laid out and sold for burial purposes. 

The fourth and final extension was made on the Easterly side in the 
year 1847, when Benjamin Rushmore, owner of the adjoining land, pre- 
pared a map of one hundred and forty-four plots which were rapidly sold 
to Hempstead families. This was called "The New Cemetery of Benjamin 
Rushmore in the Village of Hempstead." Still further East, fronting on 
Fulton Avenue, was the newly located Manse of the Presbyterian Church. 
In 1922, the grave-stones in the Rushmore section were also buried beneath 
the sod, by the Village authorities, forming an addition to Fulton Field. 

There had been no interments in any of these grounds for many years. 
In later years, however, many bodies were removed from these unincor- 
porated and neglected grounds to the more modern "Greenfield Cemetery," 
a mile or so South of Hempstead village. 

Here follows the record of five hundred and forty-four inscriptions 
from stones in the old Town Burial Ground, as made by Thomas V. Smith, 
C. E., at the time the stones were buried in each grave. In some cases 
his record has been amplified by a comparison with copies of the inscrip- 
tions made at an earlier date. 



INSCRIPTIONS FROM HEMPSTEAD'S OLD TOWN BURIAL 

GROUND. 

The graves in the Old Town Burial Ground are numbered consecutively 
from 1 to 543, beginning on the westerly side, and extending, in twenty-one 
lines, from Fulton Avenue northerly as is indicated upon the map which 
Engineer Smith has filed in the office of the Village Clerk of Hempstead. 

While adopting an alphabetical order in this list, for the convenience of 
reference, we have retained at the left hand side the number of each grave, 
so that its location may be readily determined by a reference to the map. Some 
of these graves, which are indicated by a *, appear not to lie within the boun-

220 The Genealogical Record of Rev. Ebenezer* Pemberton. f July 



THE GENEALOGICAL RECORD OF 

REV. EBENEZER 8 PEMBERTON (1704-5-1777), 

PASTOR OF THE FIRST (WALL STREET) PRESBYTERIAN 

CHURCH, NEW YORK CITY (1727-1753), AND OF THE 

NEW BRICK CHURCH, BOSTON, MASS. (1754-1777). 



Contributed by John R. Totten. 



The various biographers and genealogists who have essayed to record 
the vital facts of the life of Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton (the subject of this 
sketch) have been so incomplete or inaccurate in their statements regard- 
ing many of those facts that it is deemed desirable here once more to record 
them in the light of such authoritative information as is now available. 
The fact that this Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton left no issue by his four 
known marriages, and also the additional fact that his first and his second 
wives both bore the same baptismal name of Catharine, the first wife dying 
in 1751 and the second dying prior to August 2, 1757, — has caused those 
who have written of his life to fail, up to this present time, to give any 
record whatever of his second marriage. 

As far as it is known his genealogical record is set forth here below, 
with reference to the authorities upon which such record is based, viz: — 

Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton (Rev. Ebenezer 2 Pemberton of the Old 
South Church, Boston, James 1 Pemberton of Boston) W was born in Bos- 
ton, Feb. 6, 1704-5 < 2) he was baptized Boston, Feb. 11, 1704-5; (8) he gradu- 
ated from Harvard College, A.B., in I72i, (4) and received his degree of 
A. M. therefrom in 1724 ; in 1770 he received from the College of New 
Jersey (now Princeton University) the honorary degree of D.D. (5) His 
friends hoped that he would pursue a secular career; but his inclination 
towards a studious life prevailed, and he was as distinguished during his 
college course as a scholar, as he was in after life as a minister. After 
graduation he was licensed to preach and he became the Chaplain at Castle 
William in Boston Harbor, where Lieut. Governor Dummer resided and 
whose intimate friend he became, a tie which survived until the Governor's 
death. (6) Mr. Pemberton's services at Castle William were but preparatory 
to his entering upon a wider field of usefulness. 

The pulpit of the First Presbyterian Church in New York City (then 
located where now stands the Sub-Treasury building on Wall Street) in 
1726 had become vacant. Mr. Pemberton was invited to pay a visit to the 
church for the purpose of becoming acquainted with the congregation. So 
acceptable were his public services while on this visit in 1726, that the con- 
gregation (though previously much divided amongst themselves) united 
in proffering to him an affectionate and urgent call to become their pastor. 
Mr. Pemberton accepted the call and at once returned to Boston, where, 
on Aug. 9, 1727, he was ordained as a minister, Dr. Colman preaching his 
ordination sermon ; he thereupon at once repaired to New York and took 
up the duties of Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, in which service 
he continued until November, 1753, a pastorate of twenty-six years. Dur-

ing this period he held a conspicuous and honorable place amongst the 
ministers of New York City. In 1739 there was an extensive revival of 
religion in New York and both the church and congregation was much in- 
creased and strengthened. In 1740 Whitefield first visited New York and 
Mr. Pemberton was the only clergyman in the city who invited him to his 
pulpit. In Whitefield's succeeding visits to the city he often preached for 
Mr. Pemberton and many who came to hear Whitefield remained as mem- 
bers of the First Presbyterian Church from their preference for Mr. Pem- 
berton's ministrations. The congregation at length became so large that an 
associate pastor was appointed in 1750. Soon after this dissension arose 
in the congregation fomented by the narrow minded individuals of the 
flock who were opposed to the broader religious attitude of Mr. Pember- 
ton, and in October, 1753, both pastors tendered their resignations. Mr. 
Pemberton was urged by the church government to reconsider his decision, 
but one month later he made his resignation final and was dismissed with 
great expressions of regret and a hearty endorsement of his ministerial cap- 
ability and worthiness. 

Mr. Pemberton was called as pastor to the New Brick Church, Boston, 
by the unanimous vote of the Church on Dec. 31, 1753 ; and he was installed 
as pastor of that church on March 6, 1754, and continued as such until his 
death in lyyy.^ He was a man of broad religious views and it was on 
account of those views and his practical application of them that he came 
in conflict with the strongly conservative retroactive Scotch Presbyterian 
element of his New York Church. A striking example of the christian lib- 
erality of his theology is cited by Chandler Robbins in his History of the 
New Brick Church, Boston, in which he calls attention to the fact that in 
1771 the Baptist Society, neighbors of the New Brick Church, being about 
to build a new church, made a request to be permitted to worship in the 
New Brick Church until their own new edifice was ready for occupancy. 
This request was unanimously and most cordially granted by both Mr. 
Pemberton and his congregation. The two separate religious bodies wor- 
shipped together from June until December of that year, the pastors of 
the two churches officiating by turns and sat side by side in the pulpit, 
while both congregations intermingled in the pews. 

On his return to Boston, in 1753, Mr. Pemberton was one of the most 
popular preachers of his time, due to his eloquence and liberal Christianity. 
As time progressed towards the Revolutionary period it developed that 
Mr. Pemberton was a strong adherent to the Loyalist cause ; (8) his congre- 
gation was composed largely of ardent supporters of American inde- 
pendence and they ceased to be inspired by Mr. Pemberton's teachings ; his 
popularity vanished and his church was closed in 1775. During the siege 
of Boston, he removed to Andover, Mass., and never again presided over 
his one time congregation. He was never formally dismissed from his 
pastorate. His death occurred on Sept. 9, 1777, in the seventy-third year 
of his age and fifty-first year of his ministry. His death took place at a 
time when the country was in the throes of the Revolution and he, on ac- 
count of his Loyalist proclivities, was undoubtedly living in the strictest 
seclusion. It is on this account that the various authorities differ some- 
what as to the exact day of the month on which, and the year in which, 
he died/ 9 )

It was during the earliest part of his pastorate in New York City that 
he married his first wife, Catharine (Harris) Smith (daughter of John 
Harris, a baker of New York City, and widow of William Smith, Junior, 
a merchant of New York City), as her second husband. She married Wil- 
liam Smith, Junior, in the Dutch Church, N. Y. City on Oct. n, 1721, the 
banns of marriage having been recorded there on Sept. 26th of that year.< 10) 
William Smith, Junior, made his will May 3, 1727, which will was proved, 
April 12, 1728. The date of the marriage of Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton to 
his first wife, Catharine (Harris) Smith, is nowhere specifically recorded; 
but it must have been subsequent to May 3, 1727, the date of the will of 
her first husband (William Smith, Junior), and probably subsequent to 
the date of the proving of that will, April 28th, 1728; and it was prior to 
June 3, 1729, when Catharine (Harris) Smith and her second husband, 
Ebenezer Pemberton of New York City joined in a conveyance of title to 
land in Eastchester, N. Y. (11) The proof of this first marriage of Rev. 
Ebenezer 3 Pemberton is also established by the array of evidence here below 
set forth : — 

Firstly: — Whereas Annetje Claas Cressens, late widow of Daniel 
Litscho, of this city, deceased, did in her last will give to Hermanus Jan- 
sen, her son by a former husband, the sum of 400 guilders sewant, and unto 
Annie Litscho, her daughter by the latter, the like sum, and having disposed 
of the remainder of the estate that she died possessed of to the children of 
her said son and daughter during their lives and then to their children. 
And did appoint Mr. Thomas Lamberts of Bedford upon Long Island, 
carpenter, and Mr. Asser Levy of this city, merchant, and having made 
proof of the will, which remains in the Secretary's office. They are con- 
firmed May 16, i679. (12) 

Secondly: — A daughter Anna, born to Daniel Lisco, was baptized 
in the Dutch Church in New Amsterdam, June 6, 1647; witnesses, Marten 
Cregier, Marritje Jacobs. (13) 

Thirdly: — Hannah Litscho was granted a license to marry Thomas 
Tiddeman on Sept. 18, i666, (14) and he dying, she, Annie Tiddeman was 
granted a license on March 14, 1675-6, to marry William Peartree. Col. 
William Peartree was born in 1642, and died 1714, aged 72 years. He was 
the Mayor of New York City, 1703-7. He left a will dated Jan. 27, 1713, 
leaving to his wife Anna one-half of his estate and the other one-half to 
his well-beloved grandson, William Smith, son of William Smith, merchant, 
by the testator's daughter Frances Peartree, when he comes of age, and 
appointed the son-in-law, William Smith, and the grandson, William Smith, 
his executors. The grandson, William Smith, became a merchant of New 
York City and in turn made his will May 3, 1727, which will was proved 

Annals of the American Pulpit, Vol. I, pp. 336-7 agrees. Therefore according to those 
authorities he died in 1777 (as he was born in 1704-5 and was ordained Aug. 9, 1727). — The 
Neu, England Hist. Gen. Register, Vol. XLVI, pp. 395-6, states that he died 9 Sept., 1777 
(P- 395). and 1779 (p. 396), one of which year dates is of course in error. — Robbins' History 
of the Second Church, Boston, p. 102, states : "On Tuesday morning last, September 9, 1779, 
departed this life, after a long confinement, the Rev. Dr. Pemberton." — The Records of the 
Pemberton Family, p. 12, state that he died in 1777, as does also the General Catalogue of 
Princeton University, 1746-1906, p. 398. Sprague's Annals of the American Pulpit, Vol. I, 
PP- 336-7, states that he died September 15, 1777. We therefore see that the preponderance 
of evidence is to the effect that he died Sept. 9, 1777.

April 12, 1728, in which he left one-half of his estate to his wife Catharine, 
and one-half to his son William Smith, Junior. The son, William Smith, 
Junior, and the testators father-in-law, John Harris, baker, were appointed 
executors. This Catharine 1 (Harris) Smith, widow of William Smith, 
. Junior, became the first wife of Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton (Rev. Ebenezer, 2 
James 1 ). 

Fourthly: — An abstract of a conveyance recorded in the West- 
chester County, New York, Land Records at White Plains, N. Y., Liber F., 
p. 345, states that (13) : — "Ebenezer Pemberton of New York City, Gent., 
and Catharine, his wife, late Catharine Smith, widow of William Smith, 
late of the same city, merchant, deed., to the other proprietors of the Long 
Reach Patent in Eastchester; June 3, 1729. Whereas the aforesaid Coll. 
William Peartree did devise in 1713 unto his wife Ann, one-half of all 
houses, etc., and ye remaining one-half unto ye said William Smith, to be 
delivered to him at ye age of 21 ; and if it should happen that he should die 
before yt. age, unto his wife Catharine. Soon after making his will the 
sd William Smith departed this life and by means thereof the sd Catharine 
became, and is now seized, among other things, of and in one-half of all ye 
right and estate which ye said William Smith had or was vested with by 
virtue of ye will aforesaid of sd William Peartree in any manner or wise. 
And whereas the sd Catharine Smith did lately intermarry with ye sd 
Ebenezer Pemberton." Deed to the other Proprietors, June 3, 1729. 

Catharine (Harris) Smith-Pemberton, the first wife of Rev. Ebenezer 3 
Pemberton died and the notice of her death appeared in the Pennsylvania 
Gazette, under date of June 13, 1751. William Smith, Junior, first husband 
of Catharine Harris, and son of William and Frances (Peartree) Smith 

was born Feb. 26, 1697-8; died , 1727-8; he married Oct. 11, 1721, 

Catharine Harris of New York, by whom he had one son, William Peartree 
Smith, who graduated from Yale College in I742.< 16) Catharine (Harris) 
Smith-Pemberton left all of her fortune to her second husband, Rev. Eben- 
ezer 3 Pemberton, and the above record shows that she married Rev. 
Ebenezer 3 Pemberton between the dates April 12, 1728, and June 3, 1729. 
Her portrait and that of Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton were in 1890 in the 
possession of Mrs. Edwin Babcock of Westerly, R. I.< 17 > 

The second and unto now overlooked marriage of Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pem- 
berton was to Catharine, daughter of Richard Stillwell, Esq., a merchant 
of New York City, who was born June 25, 1671, and died April 16, 1743, 
aged 71-9-22, at Shrewsbury, N. J., by his second wife Mercy Sands 
(daughter of Samuel and Dorothy (Ray) Sands) who was born in 1693 
and died Oct. 24, 1746, aged 53 years. Richard Stillwell was one of the 
founders of the First Baptist Church in New York City. (18) Catharine 
Stillwell, the second wife of Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton was born about 
1716, and her marriage to Mr. Pemberton must have taken place after 
June 13, 1751, the date of the notice of Mr. Pemberton's first wife's death, 
and before Feb. 26, 1755, the date of the following quoted substantiating 
letter, the original of which is in the possession of Dr. John E. Stillwell of 
New York City, which letter was addressed to James Mott of the Baptist 
Church of Middletown, N. J., of which church Catharine Stillwell was a 
member at the time of her marriage to Mr. Pemberton.

The letter reads as follows : — 

"Boston, Feb. 26, 1755. 
My Dear Friend & Brother in Our Lord Jesus Christ. 

I have had the pleasure of receiving your kind, & most affectionate 
Letter, by your kinsman Mr. Obadiah Holmes (etc., etc.). When I was 
first married, I fully intended by ye leave of providence, to have given my- 
self the satisfaction of paying a visit to Middletown, & communicating 
with the church there, at least once every year, but finding the numerous 
cares of a Family come on frequently having sickness amongst my servants 
together with building and being obliged to move into several different 
houses, during the two years I continued at New York after my marriage 
rendered it impracticable for me, Especially in ye Spring of the year, that 
being a season in which I was generally most taken up. When I had the 
pleasure of see y r daughter at New York, I had thoughts of coming to 
your part of the country before my removal but Mr. Pemberton was at 
that time involved in a scene of trouble & difficulty relating to some dis- 
censions that arose amongst a party of the begotted Scotch Irish Presby- 
terians* that belonged to his former church in that place, and soon after 
having an Immediate call to his present church at Boston, was obliged to 
take a journey hither in ye severity of ye winter, and leave me at New 
York with the care of his affairs, my duty in compliance with this dispensa- 
tion of providence, and my affection for him, Obliged me to make what dis- 
patch I possibly could to follow him, and this last change put a final stop 
to all my designs of coming that way. But my not writing to you or to 
my worthy Friend Mr. Morgan, on this occasion, was an omission I can 
by no means but justify acknowledge it was wrong, & I am heartily sorry 
for it not as it was a breech of duty, but because it has been matter of con- 
cern to you ; & perhaps occasioned some misapprehensions & unjust con- 
clusions amongst some of my own persuasion concerning my present 
circumstances & my own conduct in this matter. With regard to my pres- 
ent situation of life altho' I have married a gentleman of different senti- 
ments from myself, respecting the externals of religion, yet I had the hap- 
piness of marrying One who is a friend to God, a friend to his people under 
every denomination, & a friend to liberty of conscience, so that I am ready 
to testify to the whole world, if there was occasion of it, that I have had 
no difficulty from this quarter, but on the contrary have been treated with 
the utmost generosity, & indulgence, and have had all ye encouragement 
I could wish for, to act freely and without restraint, in matters of religion. 
And as to my own conduct in this affair when it was determined that we 
should leave New York and settle in Boston, Mr. Pemberton several 
times mentioned to me the propriety of writing to you and Mr. Morgan, 
and applying for a letter of recommendation to Mr. Bowne, but I was 
*he less sollicitous about it, inasmuch as I had been admitted to Communi- 
cate in Mr. Bowne's church when I was upon a visit in Boston last year. 
And since my removal I have had the satisfaction of occasional com- 
munion with him & shall continue it, & altho' Mr. Bowne has mentioned 
nothing of this nature to me, but is satisfied with my character, yet I 
think it would be most descent & proper to have a certificate of my Be- 
haviour whilst I resided amongst you, which if you will be pleased to 
send it will be very agreeable to me. That the church at Middletown con- 
tinues in peace I am glad to hear Mr. Morgan's continuing Eminent in the

Ministry I make no doubt of, may the supream Head of the church own 
him as one of his faithful ambassadors, and bless his labor with success, 
that many may be his crown of rejoicing in the day of Christ Jesus. Your 
complaint of being overcome with Lukewarmness is a case too much to be 
lamented in every place, it behoves all to whom the glorious Gospel of 
Salvation has been made savour of life unto life to pray for a revival of 
decay'd religion. Mr. Pemberton joyns in respects to Mr. Morgan & y r 
self & be pleased to give my love to my brother [Dr. Richard Stillwell of 

(Middletown] when you see him, and to all your family and my friends in 
general. I shall be glad to maintain Correspondence with you by letter. 
And now that the God of all comfort & consultation may be with you is the 
prayer of y r unworthy sister in ye Gospel Bands. 

(sgd) Catharine Pemberton." 

It will be noted that Mrs. Pemberton in her letter states that she re- 
mained in New York two years after her marriage prior to her removing 
to Boston to join her husband ; and also that she did not go to Boston with 
her husband but joined him later after making "what dispatch she could 
to follow him." Mr. Pemberton was formally called to the New Brick 
Church, Boston, Dec. 31, 1753, and was installed there as pastor March 6, 
1754. It is fair to presume that Mrs. Pemberton was present in Boston 
at his installation in 1754, and two years prior to that would place the 
year of his marriage about 1752, or about a year after his first wife's 
death. The exact date may be obtainable from the records of the First 
Baptist Church in New York City, or perhaps from the Baptist Church 
at Middletown, N. J. 

The History and Genealogical Record of one branch of the Stillwell 
Family, by Dewitt Stilwell and Lamont Stilwell, 1914, pp. 39 and 41, is in 
error in stating that Catharine Stilwell (daughter of Richard and Mercy 
(Sands) Stilwell) married Rev. Thomas Pemberton. — The Memoirs of the 
Stilwell Family, by Benj. Marshall Stilwell, 1878, pp. 274, 281, and Notes on 
the Descendants of Nicholas Stillwell, the Ancestor of the Stillwell Family 
in America, by William H. Stillwell, 1883, pp. 3-5, 9, are both in error in 
stating that Catharine Stillwell (daughter of Richard and Mercy (Sands) 
Stillwell) married Rev. Richard Pemberton. 

All of these authorities agree in stating that Catharine Stillwell mar- 
ried a Rev. Mr. Pemberton, but they are in error in not giving him his 
correct name of Rev. Ebenezer Pemberton. 

Catharine (Stillwell) Pemberton, second wife of Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pem- 
berton, d. ? (prior to Sept. 1, 1757, the date on which Rev. Ebenezer 3 

Pemberton married his 3rd wife), at Boston, Mass., probably, although 
no specific record of the date and place of her death or burial has as yet 
been discovered. 

Mr. Pemberton married a third time on Sept. 1, 1757 at Boston, Mass. 
(the intention of his marriage having been published in Boston, Aug. 2, 
1757), (19) to Mrs. Rebecca Smith, whose date of birth and parentage have 

not as yet been determined ; (20) she d. ? (prior to June 13, 1768, (the 

date of marriage of Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton to his fourth wife), at 

(Boston, Mass., probably). (20) In the record of this marriage her name is 

( 19 >. Boston Marriages, 1752-1809, pp. 25, 37a 

( 2 °). Boston Marriages, printed volume, 1700-1751, gives us the following items: — 

p. 5. Thomas Smith and Mary Corwin were married May 9, 1701, by Mr. Sam. 
Willard. 

p. 16. Thomas Smith and Rebecca Stratton (intention reads Streeter) were married 
Dec. 12, 1707, by Mr. Cotton Mather. 



2 26 The Genealogical Record of Rev. Ebenezer* Pemberton. [July 



given as Mrs. Rebecca Smith. The title Mrs. may indicate that she was a 
widow or it may simply be a title of courtesy for which reason I have given 
in note No. 20 all references I have been able to locate referring to Re- 
1 • becca Smiths in the births and marriages of Boston of about that time. 

Mr. Pemberton married a fourth time on June 13, 1768, at Boston, 

Mass., to Anna Powell, (21) b. , 1723, at ; d. March 8, 1770, at ? 

She was a daughter of John Powell. (22) 

I have been unable to determine more than here stated relative to 
Anna Powell, the fourth wife of Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton. Conjecture 
in matters genealogical is a fruitful source of error, but as a clue to further 
investigation towards establishing her identity in full I will call attention 
to the fact the Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton's first charge after being licensed 
to preach was the post of Chaplain at Castle William, Boston Harbor, to 
which post he was appointed by Lieut. Gov. William Dummer, with whom 
he was on terms of intimate friendship as long as the Governor lived. 
Boston Marriages, 1 700-1 751, p. 54, states that John Powell married Anna 
Dummer, on May 13, 1714, the ceremony having been performed by the 
Rev. Ebenezer 2 Pemberton (father of Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton). This 
Anna Dummer (Savage s Gen. Die. of New Eng., Vol. II, p. 79) was a 
sister of Lieut. Governor William Dummer. A daughter of John and Anna 
(Dummer) Powell would be of appropriate age to become a wife of Rev. 
Ebenezer 3 Pemberton ; the friendship of Mr. Pemberton and Governor 
Dummer renders Mr. Pemberton's acquaintance with John and Anna 
(Dummer) Powell a certainty, and the certainty of this entire group being 
of Loyalist proclivities, renders it possible that Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pember- 
ton's 4th wife was Anna Powell, daughter of John and Anna (Dummer) 
Powell. 

Chandler Robbins in his History of the New Brick Church, p. 317, 
states that one of the wives of Mr. Pemberton was a Penhallow of Ports- 
mouth which statement is also made by Sprague in his Annals of the Ameri- 
ican Pulpit, Vol. I, p. 37. I find no evidence whatever of the accuracy of 
this statement. I do find, however, that James 3 Pemberton of Boston 
(Thomas, 2 James 1 ) a cousin of Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton, published his 
intention in Boston on May 6, 1708, to marry Hannah Penhallow of Ports- 
mouth/ 23 ) This Hannah Penhallow was born May 3, 1688 and died in 
1757. She was a daughter of Samuel and Mary (Cutt) Penhallow. (24) 

I am convinced that the Rev. Ebenezer 3 Pemberton never did marry 
a Penhallow and that those writers who have stated that he did confused 
him with his cousin James 3 Pemberton.

5, I707-

Elizabeth Gesner (Horton) Coles, wife of Selleck Everett Coles, who is a grand-daughter 
of the late Bartholomew Gedney, Senior, and a daughter of his daughter Mary Elizabeth 
Gedney who married William Horton, also of White Plains. 

*In collecting material for the Christophers Genealogy, compiled by me and published 
in the New York Gen. and Biog. Record, April, 1919-July, 1921 (and subsequently issued 
by the N. Y. Gen. & Biog. Society in book form), — there came into my possession two 
copies of what must have been originally the records contained in the Family Bible of the 
Hon. Capt. Richard 2 Christophers (Christopher 1 ) of New London, Conn. (See Record 
No. 4 of the descendants of Christopher 1 Christophers of New London). One of these 
copies came to me from amongst the family record of Anthony Thatcher of New London, 
Conn., and the other (an exact duplicate in all particulars of the first copy) came to me 
from the hands of Miss Louisa Webster Taylor (now deceased), a sister of Mrs. John H. 
Schoenberger (nee Alice E. Taylor) of No. 18 East 62nd Street, N. Y. City, both descend- 
ants of Christopher 1 Christophers. Both of these copies are in the same (a man's) hand- 
writing and are made upon' unlined fools-cap paper of the character of such paper manu- 
factured upwards of one hundred years ago (or more) ; the paper in both copies is much 
yellowed by time and the ink used in the writing of each is somewhat faded by the same 
agent. Apparently both copies were made at the same time, as the paper is the same, the 
ink the same, the handwriting the same, and in each copy the writing on each page (3l4 
pages in all in each copy), begins and ends with the same word, and the phraseology in both 
copies is identical. Not only is the handwriting that of the same individual, but in both 
copies it gives examples of that handwriting at the same time of life of the writer. 

Although the substance of the vital facts contained in these copies (which are now 
in the manuscript collection of the N. Y. Gen. & Biog. Society) was embodied in the Chris- 
tophers Genealogy above referred to, yet for the benefit of those of the future. I publish 
here above a verbatim copy of these copies, as an authoritative reference for subsequent 
generations of those of Christophers blood : — J. R. Totten. 

fBerrie, according to "Later History of the First Church, New London, Conn.," p. 467. 
where this child is recorded as having been baptized November 14th, 1703. Hence the date 
of birth was probably November 12, 1703.

*The vital records here published were copied from the family bible of John Mumford 
of Salem (and later of New London), Conn., (1740-1825) and his wife Lucretia Christo- 
phers (1749-50-1825). This bible passed to their daughter Lucretia Christophers Mum- 
ford (1785-1871) who married Anthony Thatcher of New London, Conn. (1782-1843-4), 
and remained in such possession until his death in 1843 and her death 1871 ; it then 
passed into the possession of their widowed and maiden daughters and after their 
respective deaths passed into the possession of Anthony Thatcher's grandson, John R. 
Totten, in whose possession it now (1923) remains. Although the vital facts here recorded 
have been published in the Thatcher Genealogy and the Christophers Genealogy, by John R. 
Totten (see N. Y. Gen. and Biog. Record, Vol. XLV, pp. 345-6,— Vol. LIT, pp. 179-80, 
236-240), yet they are here again set forth as an original source of information, for the 
benefit of those of the blood who in the future may be interested. The bible itself was 
printed in 1782 in Dublin, Ireland. — John R. Totten.

had no known issue, — secondly to Goe Woolsey (daughter of John and Cloe (Peck) 
Woolsey of the town of Marlborough), by whom he had six children, viz: David W..
